A 62-year-old man was wounded in the leg by two Los Angeles police officers after he failed to drop a gun he was pointing at the officers in an incident near a bar the man owns in Boyle Heights, investigators said. Inocencio Torres of Los Angeles was shot by the two officers, Sgt. Edward Garcia, 42, and Officer Roland Esquivel, 26, after he was ordered to stop while chasing another man after an argument in the bar in the 2900 block of Brooklyn Avenue. Torres was held on charges of attempted murder at the County-USC Medical Center jail ward, where he was reported in satisfactory condition. The man that Torres was chasing, Roberto Acosta, 23, was held on an unrelated charge, police said.
