Police were looking for a gunman Monday night who opened fire on a victim in an apparent gang-related attack near the Eagle Rock Library.

The male victim was waking with a group of friends when they were confronted by the attacker, who fired several rounds, said Lt. John Cook of the Los Angeles Police Department's Northeast Division.

The victim, whose name and age were not released, was in stable condition, according to Cook.

The attack occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 5000 block of Casper Avenue. No other details were available.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Northeast station watch commander at (323) 256-4335.
