Man fatally shot in Hollywood; gunman remains at large
Los Angeles police are searching for a suspect who they say fatally shot a man during an argument in Hollywood on Wednesday evening.
The shooter fired multiple times at the victim during a confrontation about 7 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Lizabeth Lomeli. The victim attempted to flee the area in a car, but crashed into a parked vehicle near Argyle and Selma avenues, she said.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to authorities. The suspect was wearing a black shirt and shorts and fled the scene in a white Mercedes-Benz, police told KTLA-TV Channel 5.
The victim was described as 20 to 30 years old. His identity was not released.
The shooting comes less than a week after a gunman killed two people in the same neighborhood. Marvin Francell Williams, 32, of Compton was arrested Wednesday in the deaths of Nadia Campbell, 35, and Ajani Patridge, 40, authorities said.
Williams was arrested in San Bernardino County, the LAPD announced, and transported to Los Angeles and booked on a no-bail murder warrant, according to jail records.
