Man Shot, Killed In South Robertson Just Standing In A Driveway

There are all sorts of bad element, bad gangbangers, thieves and the like hanging out and walking around south of Pico Blvd near Robertson in zip code 90035. These are areas I’ve been checking out to rent a room or a guest house or a studio apartment.

I’ve had friends and acquaintances held up at knife point by gangbangers in Pico-Robertson. Sometimes people are just walking home on Shabbat and they’re assaulted. Cars are broken into by these same scum.
