WESTLAKE DISTRICT, LOS ANGELES (KABC) --A 19-year-old driver is in grave condition at a hospital after being shot in the head in the Westlake District Wednesday night.
Authorities said the incident happened around 9 p.m. near Beverly Boulevard and Vendome Street. The victim was found in his car and transported to LAC+USC Medical Center. He underwent surgery.
Police interviewed witnesses who told them a shooter had targeted the driver on foot. But witnesses Eyewitness News spoke to said it appeared to be a car-to-car shooting.
Two witnesses who were attending church in the area said they were outside when they saw two cars speeding down the street. They said shots came from a black Tahoe and the suspect sped off.
Witnesses also said the suspect appeared to have a cowboy hat on, but a police sergeant said they had no suspect or vehicle description.
It was unclear what led to the shooting.
The investigation was ongoing, and the shooter remained on the loose.
