A man is hospitalized Saturday in stable condition after being shot in what police believe was a gang-related shooting near Boyle Heights.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department responded at approximately 4 a.m. to a shots fired call at Lorena and Beswick streets south of the Santa Ana (5) Freeway where they learned the victim was standing alone when a car drove up and began firing shots at him, striking the man several times before driving away, an LAPD spokesman told City News Service.

Paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived and took the man to the hospital.

There was no suspect description.
