Circling the News received the following information from a resident, who was traveling southbound on Temescal Canyon Road around 7 a.m. today (Sunday).
“A man on the side of the road right at PCH and Temescal was lying on the ground. He says he was shot. Cops and Palisades Patrol have just arrived.”
Another resident said that two men got into a verbal argument at the 76 gas station at PCH and Sunset. One man drove to Will Rogers State Beach followed by the second man, described as Latino, who shot him. The gunman then jumped into a white van and headed south on PCH towards the pier.
The man who was shot got back in his car and drove across PCH to Temescal Canyon Road and told a passerby to call the police.
A resident said that there was a witness to the shooting. The victim was reported in stable condition on local television news.
The current Pacific Palisades Senior Lead Officer Oscar Perez was contacted about a possible motive and if the shooting suspect had been apprehended. CTN will update the story as we find out more information.
