A man sustained a gunshot wound and a laceration to his head after a brutal encounter with robbers in downtown Los Angeles last week.
The incident, which was caught on surveillance video, occurred near 7th and Hill Streets after 3 p.m. on Feb. 4.
The man, 26, was shopping with his wife, 28, and their 2-year-old child. Two men jumped out of a car, pointed guns at the family, and robbed them.
In the surveillance video, one of the suspects grapples with the father and slams his body on the hood of the suspects’ vehicle.
The father was pistol-whipped and then shot in the arm. Meanwhile, his wife “ran to safety with her son and was not harmed,” according to the Los Angeles police.
The armed robbers fled westbound on 7th Street in their gray Chrysler 300. The victim was rushed to a hospital for treatment.
