An argument at Bellevue Recreation Center in Silver Lake Tuesday night involving rival gang members left a man in his 20s wounded in the back and a hand, police said.

The shooting occurred at 8:02 p.m. in the center in the 800 block of Lucile Avenue, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Bruce Borihanh.

The suspect was described as a male with a heavy build, Borihanh said.

The wounds were not believed to be life threatening, he said.

The attached YouTube was shot at the scene by Patch user Zack Zarate, who shared the link in the Announcements section on Echo Park-Silver Lake Patch.
