A security guard fell victim to gunfire following an altercation with an unidentified man in the early hours of Monday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The incident unfolded Apt 200 nightclub, situated at 7746 Santa Monica Blvd (this space was once home to The Spike many years ago). KTLA reports that at approximately 12:50 a.m., a confrontation ensued between the suspect, described only as a man, and the guard. Later, the clubgoer returned to the scene, armed with a handgun, and he shot the security guard in the leg, as confirmed by officials.
Law enforcement swiftly apprehended the alleged shooter at the location, while the injured guard received medical attention at a nearby hospital, where he remains in stable condition.
Fortunately, there were no other reported injuries stemming from this incident.
