A man in his 30s was wounded Saturday afternoon in a Van Nuys shooting by a rifle-wielding man who fled the scene.

The shooting occurred about 2:45 p.m. in the 6800 block of Peach Avenue, said Los Angeles police Officer Matthew Cruz.

The victim was rushed to a hospital, and his condition was not immediately available, Cruz said.

The suspect fled northbound on Peach carrying a chrome-and-brown rifle or “rifle-type gun,” the officer said.

The suspect was described as Hispanic, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, wearing a red shirt and blue pants and a black backpack, Cruz said.
