Man Is Shot, Wounded in Possible Hate Crime

June 17, 2004|From Times Staff Reports

A 19-year-old man was shot and critically wounded Tuesday night in a restaurant in what police called a hate crime.

He had walked past a man and woman sitting at Chano's Restaurant on West Beverly Boulevard at 10:40 p.m., and the woman had made "a derogatory remark about the victim's perceived sexual orientation," Los Angeles Police Officer Adriana Sanchez said.

The woman followed the victim, the two argued, the woman slapped the victim and he slapped her back, Sanchez said.

The woman's companion got a gun from his pickup truck and shot the victim. The couple fled.
