Start­Frag­ment

 A 23-year-old Sum­mer­dale man was shot in the ab­do­men early Oct. 5 in the drive­way be­hind his home on the 5200 block of Roosevelt Blvd.

Po­lice spokes­wo­man Of­ficer Jill­ian Rus­sell on Tues­day said the man was taken to Al­bert Ein­stein Med­ic­al Cen­ter and is in stable con­di­tion. Rus­sell said the vic­tim was walk­ing up a rear drive­way on the west side of the Boulevard when he was ap­proached by an armed man who de­man­ded money. The two men quarreled and the vic­tim was shot, she said.

The gun­man is a 20-year-old slender black man with a dark com­plex­ion who was wear­ing a dark blue Nike jack­et and a black skullcap.
