A 33-year-old man was walking down a street in Boyle Heights when he was wounded in a drive-by shooting, and the gunman remains at large, police said Wednesday.

The shooting took place in the 3100 block of Lanfranco Street about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, according to Sgt. Miguel Lopez, the watch commander at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollenbeck Division.

“The victim was walking down the street and four gunshots were fired,” Lopez said. “The victim was hit once in the calf.”

The man was transported by city fire paramedics to a hospital for treatment of his non-life-threatening wound.

“So far, we don’t have any suspect description,” Lopez said early this morning.

A motive for the shooting was unknown. There’s no word yet on whether the shooting was gang-related.
