Taco truck violence is nothing new, we’ve reported on dozens of violent episodes in or around taco trucks through the years. However the nature of the most recent taco truck attack is especially disconcerting. According to LA NOW,

The gunman got out of a white sedan about 10:40 p.m. Wednesday in the 10800 block of Inglewood Avenue and began shooting at people, according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. The victims were reportedly eating at a taco truck.

The sad truth is that violence can shatter the communal feeling of relaxation around a taco truck at any moment. Taco trucks may be culinary sanctuaries, but sadly they are just as exposed to the violence in this city as any other location.

In this case, 1 person died and 5 others, including some children, were injured. More information as it becomes available.
