“Shooting a gun in public is a serious offence that can have tragic consequences not only for the person targeted but also for innocent eyewitnesses while visiting Hollywood,” said Attorney General. George Gascon County said.

“My office has conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special weapons charge is warranted.”

Mayers will be scheduled for Wednesday, August 17 in Los Angeles.
