It all seemed like it was this man's lucky day as he won at the casino, but it did not cross his mind that what would happen to him next would be a nightmare the moment he steps out.

It was early Wednesday morning, June 7, when a man who left with his winnings at Larry Flynt's Lucky Lady Casino in Gardena, California was shot four times during a robbery at a gas station.

Los Angeles police were the first responders to the shooting call at around 4:30am at the Rosecrans and Vermont avenues in the Harbor Gateway area. The Gardena Police Department eventually took over the investigation.

After the victim won a huge amount of money at the casino and was leaving the premises, another car rear-ended his (intentionally). Thinking that it was an accident, the victim pulled into a Chevron gas station a few hundred feet from the casino to talk to the occupants of the other car.

As he was out of his car, the two men tried to rob him, but he put up a fight. Unfortunately, the victim was shot four times as the two attackers fled. He was struck in the hand and grazed in the head.

Surveillance footage showed the victim trying to get inside the gas station's convenience store, but the doors were locked.

He was rushed to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and is in stable condition.

The two suspects fled eastbound from the gas station and drove a silver or light-colored gray four-door SUV. They were described as black men around age 25 and 30 years old, both between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet tall. One wore a gray-hooded sweatshirt and light pants, while the other who held a black automatic handgun had dreadlocks, a dark complexion and wore a white shirt and dark jeans.
They are still at large. Anyone with useful information can call Detective Mike Sargent at 310-217-9635 or Detective Carlos Fernandez at 310-217-9615.

What can you say. One incident after another.
The good thing of course is, that he managed to live after being shot four times.
Was he targeted because he won in the casino, or it was a random robbery.

I think this man should have even before the exit from the casino to agree with the escorts ... but he seemed to me very excited and happy that he did not think about the possibility of attack and robbery .... sad story of course

well that's the harsh reality i guess, no one is safe from such accidents. me ponders that the best situation is to have no money or a few dollaros and no one is really interested in you, or if you're in a casino do as all wise dudes do= lose.

The victim was a Navy veteran married with two kids. Here is his interview with KTLA5. I am so glad that he is ok.
