A gunshot victim survived his injuries and the suspect remained at large Thursday following a shooting near a liquor store in Canyon Country Wednesday night.
“The victim survived,” said Deputy Natalie Arriaga with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
Deputies responded to reports of a shooting near Canyon Market, located near the intersection of Soledad Canyon and Solamint roads where blood was found outside of the business and near a red SUV that was parked in the store’s parking lot.
At least two bullet casings were located near the vehicle, which was found with a shattered passenger-side window from an apparent bullet strike. A search revealed more blood was inside, according to law enforcement officials.
“No one has been arrested,” Arriaga added.
Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel tended to the victim, a man who was transported to a trauma center, according to Supervisor Michael Pittman.
Law enforcement officials said Thursday they were still investigating the incident.
“At this time, it is still under active investigation,” said Arriaga.
