Eiji Takara, a 36 year old Gardena resident shot a teenager in his driveway
because he was frustrated that kids were using his property as a shortcut.
The teenager survived and the property owner was arrested. Takara was
taken into custody on suspicion of attempted
murder and was being held at the Gardena Police Department in lieu of $1 million bail.
Takara had previously complained to authorities that neighborhood teens
were cutting through his property by jumping over the wall. He apparently
caught the 17-year-old on the wall Monday night.
If you or someone you know is facing
murder or manslaughter charges, your entire future is stake.
