Suspected North Hollywood gunman is traced through parking ticket

A suspect in a North Hollywood shooting was arrested early Sunday after being traced through a parking ticket, police said.

The gunman allegedly shot a man standing in the driveway of a home in the 11000 block of Runnymede Street at about 2:05 a.m. The victim, who was not identified, underwent surgery at a local hospital and was in serious condition.

Witnesses attending a party at the address reported that the shooter fled in a brown or gold GMC Yukon with tinted windows and 22-inch chrome wheels.

A police officer who had earlier cited several illegally parked vehicles at the location recognized the description and provided a license number, said Los Angeles police Lt. Leon Mims of the North Hollywood Station.

Police traced the suspect, whose name was not released, to a home in southwest Los Angeles, and he was apprehended with the help of K-9 units after trying to flee.
