   Shortly before 5:00 p.m. today, a man was shot in the leg on the north side of North Figueroa Street, just east of Avenue 54. The shooting occurred just outside Mama's Donuts, right next to the taco cart on the sidewalk outside the shop.

   A witness who was standing at the bus stop when the incident occurred said that "several shots" were fired by two assailants walking east on Figueroa. They apparently passed two men, then turned back and began firing, striking one of their targets in the leg. The victim was taken away from the scene in an LAFD paramedic squad.

   The shooting is just the latest in a string of violent crimes to hit the Highland Park area lately, a destination for many newly arrived residents willing to pay high prices for homes close to the center of Los Angeles.
