LATimes - over 4 years
A homeowner was shot during a Monday morning home-invasion robbery in the Hollywood Hills and authorities were searching for three armed assailants who fled the house with cash and jewelry, police said. Three robbers burst into the home in the 3300 block of Charleston Way about 9 a.m. demanding money, said Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Richard French. Two of the three men were armed, he said, and during the robbery a shooting occurred before the three assailants left with the cash and jewels.
