Authorities are searching for a suspect in the shooting of a 20-year-old man in Stanton over the weekend.

The young man had been shot in the lower back on a crowded street outside a club around 7:50 p.m. Sunday in the 10800 block of Chestnut Avenue, said Lt. Ted Boyne with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

A friend drove the victim to the hospital, Boyne said. His wounds were not considered life-threatening.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s department at (714) 647-7000.
