A man is in the hospital after being shot in Burbank and police Friday believe they have located a vehicle used to drive the suspect away from the scene.

In addition, a family member has been arrested on suspicion of aiding the suspect in his escape.

Officers from the Burbank Police Department responded to multiple 911 calls of shots fired at approximately 10 p.m. Thursday near Chandler Boulevard and Frederic Street where they discovered a male victim with a gunshot wound to the arm, said Lt. Derek Green.

Police established a perimeter near the scene of the shooting and began a search for the suspect.

Green said police believe the victim knew his assailant. “This was not a random attack. We have a good idea who the shooter is and we are actively looking for them,” Green told City News Service.

Police searched the residence where the suspect was known to reside but did not find anyone. He is still a large.

The victim was taken to a hospital and was in surgery late Thursday evening, Green said.

The shooting closed traffic in the area for several hours.
