Security guard attacked by suspects with paintball guns loaded with marbles

A private security guard told police he was attacked in a robbery attempt in North Hollywood by suspects armed with paintball guns loaded with marbles.

Officers went to Whitsett Avenue and Sherman Way about 10:30 p.m. Monday, May 15, on a report of an attempted robbery, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

According to police, four suspects fled in a gray, four-door Toyota and were being sought.

The security guard told reporters he was sitting in his personal vehicle while wearing body armor when a group of men pulled up alongside him and demanded money before opening fire on him.

The man, who was working as an ATM guard, drove to a nearby gas station for help following the shooting. He apparently was not seriously injured.
