On Dec. 13 about 2:30 a.m., two groups of men got into a fight in front of the Standard Hotel in the 500 block of South Flower Street in which two people were shot, police said.

Police said that Harrington ran around to the back of the hotel, where he exchanged gunfire with another man, who was shot in the leg. One of the rounds fired also hit Thomas Johnson, who was taken to a hospital where he died.

Police are still trying to determine what the fight was about. At this point, detectives have "no idea," said LAPD Det. Doug Pierce, who is investigating the killing.
 
Previously, police released information showing the suspect in the hotel's elevator.
