A suspicious man was shot by a security guard outside a Chabad school in Los Angeles.

The occurred at 12:24 p.m. Thursday, outside the Etz Jacob Congregation/Ohel Chana High School on the 7600 block of Beverly Boulevard.

The incident was apparently livestreamed by the victim.

The bizarre film begins as the man approaches the school, and a security guard warns him to get away and draws his weapon. About four minutes in, the guard points his weapon low and fires, hitting the man in the leg.

The unseen man shouts in pain but continues walking around for some time, as the guard seems to yell that it was a warning shot. The man finally sits down, and police are called. The police – according to the man’s narration – place him in handcuffs, before wheeling him off on a stretcher.

An LAPD spokesman could not confirm to Hamodia whether the man was arrested, and said that no further information on the incident was available at this time.

A video posted earlier on the same online account shows the man filming the same school, and a security guard confronting him, and filming the man himself. Another individual also confronts the man about his filming the school; the man, narrating, says he is merely photographing the building because he thinks “it’s pretty neat, with all this … Jewish … sculptures and stuff like that.”
