Man critically wounded in shooting
A 24-year-old man was shot yesterday morning at his Pasadena apartment after a dispute with two men that apparently started in the parking lot of the building, county police said.
Billy Howard Stanfield of the 8000 block of Corkberry Lane was in critical condition at Johns Hopkins Hospital yesterday. Police said he was shot once in the leg.
He and his girlfriend had just returned from dinner at a nearby Denny's restaurant about 1:30 a.m.
The girlfriend went up to the second-floor apartment while Mr. Stanfield parked his car. He apparently was confronted by two masked men after getting out of his car.
They followed him into the apartment, fought with him on the landing and forced their way inside.
While one man stood near the doorway, the other beat Mr. Stanfield with the handgun, then fired at least three shots, hitting the victim once, a police report says.
Mr. Stanfield's girlfriend was not injured.
A police report on the incident does not list the cause of the dispute, if Mr. Stanfield knew his attackers or if it was a random attack. Police said nothing was stolen from the apartment.
Fast-food restaurant robbed by two men
Two men, one armed with a handgun, robbed a Pasadena fast-foot restaurant Monday night and got away with an undetermined amount of money.
Police said the men entered the Wendy's restaurant in the 8100 block of Ritchie Highway about 8:40 p.m. through an unlocked kitchen door.
One of the men threatened the manager with a small caliber handgun and ordered the employees to lie on the floor. The other man took money from the cash registers and the safe.
The armed man is described as a black male in his 30s, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall. He weighs 170 pounds, has a mustache and acne. He was wearing a brown hat, brown leather jacket, gray and white T-shirt, jeans and white tennis shoes.
The second man is described as a black male, 25 to 30 years old and weighing 170 pounds. He has a light beard and was wearing plastic frame glasses, a blue shirt, black pants and Reebok shoes.
$2,200 in wallet stolen from home
A wallet containing $2,200 was stolen from a Pasadena home Sunday while the owner was attending a crab feast.
Police said two men later seen jumping fences in the Sun Valley community may be responsible. Entry was gained through a first-floor bedroom window between 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Nothing else in the home was touched, police said, and there was no sign of forced entry.
