Man Shot on Hazeltine Avenue

The circumstances leading up to the shooting are unclear and the victim is being uncooperative, police say.

A man suffered a non-life-threatening wound in a shooting in Van Nuys Wednesday night, police said.

The shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. in the 6100 block of Hazeltine Avenue, near Oxnard Street, said Sgt. Steven Gottschalk of the Los Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys Station.

The circumstances leading up to the shooting were unclear.

"He's being a little uncooperative and we have no witnesses that I know of," Gottschalk said.

I have nothing bug respect & admiration for our police officers. What we hear is the "bad" stuff because people always want drama & bad news. Our LAPD has to deal with a bunch of low life, ignorant, rude, disrespectful people every day. Many of them on drugs or drunk or just plain psycho. Young kids don't know the meaning of respect. They aren't learning it at home & it's not the job of school &/or society to teach the fundamentals. Imagine having a job where you are faced with bullcrap daily & the constant threat of someone whipping out a gun. Of course when it's a fake gun our cops are supposed to know this? If that silly punk on Hazeltine doesn't want to cooperate, let's move on to the good citizens that deserve to have our tax dollars working for them. And to our LAPD; thank you & God bless.
