By Lookout Staff

November 13 -- A 25-year old man is in critical condition at a local hospital after being shot in broad daylight in the gang-prone Pico Neighborhood Sunday.

The shooting took place around 2 p.m. at the intersection of 11th Street and Michigan Avenue, police said.

While a search for witnesses proved fruitless, police received reports of a victim at a local hospital who was shot in the abdomen and forearm.

While standing on the 1800 block of 11th Street, the victim and a friend heard the shots that struck the 25-year-old, police said.

The victim was rushed to the hospital before authorities arrived.

Witnesses reported seeing a "brown vehicle" leaving the area shortly after the shooting, police said.

It is unknown at this time whether police believe the incident is gang related.

Anyone with information should call the Santa Monica Police-Robbery/Homicide Unit at 310.458.8451 or the Watch Commander at 310.458.8427.
