The incident occurred about 2 a.m. on Hollywood Boulevard off Cosmo Street, said Sgt. Chad Lewis of the
"We had one witness who said a gentleman was shooting in the air, then fled in a vehicle," Lewis said.
That witness, the only person who came forward to police about the incident, couldn't provide any details about what the gunman looked like, Lewis said. It wasn't clear if the shooter was aiming at anyone specific, he said.
Broken glass and shell casings were found at the scene, police said.
At present, the suspect is wanted only for discharging a firearm in city limits, Lewis said.
"It was hectic around here," a witness told KTLA. "People were trying to get out of the way, so we just ran as fast as we could."
None of the incidents are related, police said.
