Posted By Robert Bernstein || 8-Dec-2009

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.
