We covered the Sherry's shooting earlier in this thread as well.
In case anyone missed it is.

Mickey's car drove up to the curb and gunmen (hiding across the street under an advertising sign indicated in the area circled on the left side of the picture) opened fire with shotguns. The gunmen then sped away in a gray auto, tossing out the guns a block away. Mickey was the least seriously wounded. (File date: July 20, 1949)

I have three additional photos in my file from the USC archive.
(but I didn't have the one you posted)

above: where the shooters hid, behind the billboard.

above: stray bullet holes.

above: Cohen's car.
