A 40-SOMETHING motorist was shot multiple times at Carillon Street and Atwater Avenue, near the Fletcher Drive taco stand, this morning around 1:00am.

There was a shooting that hit our house on Glenfeliz near the elementary school on May 3rd and we heard more gunshots last night May 5th. This is getting crazy.
