A suspect shot a victim in a car-to-car shooting at the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Temescal Canyon Road on Sunday morning, March 28, at 7 a.m., according to information shared by Los Angeles Police Department Acting Senior Lead Officer Omir Perez.
According to the report, two individuals got into a verbal altercation at a gas station on Pacific Coast Highway over bathroom use. The suspect and victim left in their respective vehicles and crossed paths again on the road, at which point the suspect shot the victim once. The victim sustained a non-life-threatening injury, Perez reported, adding that this was an “isolated incident.” No arrest had been made as the Post went to print, but “detectives are working up on the case.”
Red Fountain for Red Cross | Village Green
The dolphin fountain at Palisades Village Green was lit up red between March 24 and 31 in support of Red Cross Month and Giving Day for the first time.
“We were approached by Josie Tong, local resident and Red Cross board member and volunteer,” Village Green President Marge Gold shared. “All the board was in favor of this effort.”
“We are honored for this partnership, as Village Green is an oasis in the heart of the commercial center of town,” the Red Cross wrote on its website.
The lights are slated to return to normal on April 1 with help from Los Angeles Fire Department Station 69.
“I hope it encourages people to donate to the Red Cross by giving blood if they are able, donating money or donating time by volunteering,” Gold concluded.
Garden Club Meeting | Pacific Palisades
The Pacific Palisades Garden Club will host its next meeting on Monday, April 5, at 7 p.m.
The meeting will show attendees the benefits of native habitat gardens and locally sourced plants with an overview of Theodore Payne Foundation’s Local Source Initiative and Long Live LA Conservation Seed Bank.
The presentation will include profiles of locally occurring coastal native plant species and how they can be incorporated into landscapes.
“On the regional scale, how can we further respond to the urgent need for efforts to build habitat and preserve biodiversity more effectively?” according to information shared ahead of the meeting. “One important way [is] to go local and include ethically sourced plants from surrounding wild habitats for use in urban and wildland interface landscapes.”
