Man shot in head while driving through Cahuenga Pass
A man shot in the head while driving a white Cadillac Escalade through
the Cahuenga Pass was able to drive to a Mobil station Saturday, po-
lice said. The shooting apparently occurred on northbound Cahuenga
Boulevard about 3:30 a.m., and the wounded driver made it to a Mobil
Station at Barham Boulevard, according to a Los Angeles police officer
at the North Hollywood Station. Paramedics took the victim to Cedars-
Sinai Medical Center, where he was listed in serious condition, Sgt.
Mike Kammert said. The victim told police one of several people in a
black sport utility vehicle, another Escalade or a Chevrolet Suburban,
opened fire on him, Kammert said, adding that the man appeared to be
in shock and gave some other conflicting information. The bullet that hit
the man apparently passed through a headrest, he said. Police withheld
the wounded man’s name. He was believed to be in his 30s.
