ABC-7 reports that popular Sherman Oaks bar the Woodman was the scene of a drive-by shooting on Saturday evening/Sunday morning. The incident began with a verbal altercation that became physical around 2 a.m. Some time later, shots were fired from a vehicle, with return fire aimed toward the car. Two people were taken to a hospital for treatment with a third taken by friends elsewhere for non-medical treatment. Police said the injuries were not life threatening. The Woodman has been open since 2014 and serves gastropub fare.
