Posted March 01, 2018 09:14:07 A gym in California has reopened after being closed for months after a security guard at the facility was shot in the leg.
The incident happened last month in a gym located at the California Sports Center, which is located about 30 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles.
The guard was taken to a local hospital, where he was later listed in stable condition, police said.
The gym has reopened, and staff has returned to the facility to assist customers, said Caltrans spokesperson Eric Smith.
“The security guard was shot after he confronted two individuals who had stolen equipment from the gym,” Smith said.
“As a result of this incident, the security guard has been placed on administrative leave and the facility has been temporarily closed while he recovers.”
The gym was closed for the month of March.
Caltrans is investigating the incident and will determine what actions will be taken, Smith said in a statement.
