A 20-year-old man from Canyon Country was hospitalized after being shot while he took a walk in his neighborhood on Tuesday.

Police say the victim was walking on the 19000 block of Merryhill Street when two men in a white, four-door Honda pulled up next to him and asked for directions at about 11:50 p.m.

When he stopped to answer, one of the men in the vehicle opened fire, hitting the man in the shoulder.
