SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- One person was wounded during an armed robbery in South Los Angeles Tuesday.
Authorities say the victim was at a recycling location at 41st Street and Avalon Boulevard at 7:20 a.m. when he was approached by a suspect who produced a handgun.
The suspect demanded money, and when the victim refused, the victim was shot once in the leg.
The victim was taken to a hospital in stable condition. The suspect fled with unspecified "property," police said.
