A shooting at a cannabis dispensary in Tarzana left one man dead, police said.
The shooting took place about 12:30 p.m. on the 18000 block of Ventura Boulevard, according to Officer Cruz of the Los Angeles Police Department.
When officers arrived, the victim, a man believed to be in his mid-30s, was inside the business suffering from gunshot wounds. He was declared dead at the scene by the Los Angeles Fire Department.
No arrests have been made, and police say they’re looking for two men who they believe were involved.
Tarzana resident Maria Harris identified the victim as her 28-year-old son, Brian Garcia, who was a regular customer of the dispensary.
“My son had a good heart. He was a good kid,” she said. “He really was. That was my firstborn baby. I don’t understand why God took him from me. I don’t know what I’m going to do next. I’m really broken in pieces and I’m lost right now. I can’t even think straight.”
Police have not released many details of Garcia’s death except to say that he was fatally shot during an armed robbery, Harris told KTLA.
