A 30-year-old homeless man was wounded in a shooting while he looked for cans to recycle in a Panorama City parking lot, authorities said Monday.

The shooting occurred just after 10 p.m. Sunday at Van Nuys Boulevard and Blythe Street, according to a dispatcher at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center.

The victim was approached by two men on foot who argued with him before one suspect produced a handgun and fired several rounds at him, she said. They left the scene.

The victim was hospitalized with stable vital signs, she said.
