A robber shot a man shot in the chest early Sunday morning, according to police.
A paramedic found the victim, believed to be 18-20 years old, at or near Elm and Isabel streets about 12:21 a.m. and took him to a hospital, Lt. Andy Mathes of the Los Angeles Police Department Northeast Station said.
The robber was with an accomplice, he said, but police had no descriptions of the two suspects.
Police withheld the name of the victim, who Mathes said was in "guarded" condition.
