A man was taken to USC County Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries after being shot during an apparent road-rage incident Monday afternoon in Burbank.
The victim is in stable condition after being shot in the torso, officials said. The shooter, a man with light skin driving a dark-colored van, is still at large.
The incident began with an altercation between two drivers on the northbound 5 Freeway near the Western Avenue exit about 4:30 p.m., Burbank Police Lt. John Dilibert said.
The drivers exited the freeway at Alameda Avenue, stopped and got out of their cars near Ash Avenue and Varney Street, where they continued to argue.
The driver of the van pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots at the victim, who was driving a Mercedes sedan, Dilibert said. Bullets hit the victim once and his car several times, cracking the windshield and rear window.
