A man was hospitalized Saturday after being shot in the abdomen during an altercation in Hollywood.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood Division responded at approximately 2:37 a.m. to the 7400 block of Sunset Boulevard, near Gardner Street, where they learned a man and a woman were arguing outside the El Compadre restaurant when another man tried to intervene.

We need to make it perfectly clear that this is socially unacceptable behavior ❗ I have been arguing with obnoxious women (especially Karens) my entire life and I’ve never ended up smacking or shooting one. Now if you offer to subscribe to their social media accounts and like💖 their postings, they becomes much easier to handle because they are getting the attention they seek in life.
