Los Angeles County CA July 1 2012 Sheriff’s and Los Angeles police officials jailed a North Hollywood man Thursday on suspicion of shooting a security guard at a Pico Rivera night club with a shotgun.
Jack Lopez, 20, ultimately surrendered to officials without incident Thursday morning, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Robert Smith said.
He was booked on suspicion of attempted murder.
The shooting took place about 4 a.m. at the El Rodeo Night Club on Washington Boulevard, just west of Rosemead Boulevard, Smith said.
Lopez had been kicked out of the night club several hours before and returned with a shotgun, Smith said.
He opened fire on a security guard, who was struck in the hand and hip with shotgun pellets, the lieutenant said.
With the help of Los Angeles police, officials tracked the suspect to his home in the 7700 block of Beck Avenue in North Hollywood Thursday morning, Smith said.
Authorities surrounded the home before Lopez surrendered peacefully, he said.
According to county booking records, Lopez was being held in lieu of $1 million bail pending a scheduled arraignment in Whittier Superior Court.
