Los Angeles police are looking for a suspect they believe killed a man during an argument in Hollywood on Wednesday night.

The shooter fired multiple shots at the victim during a confrontation that happened around 7 p.m., according to Los Angeles Police Department officer Lizabeth Lomeli. The victim tried to flee the area in a car, but crashed into a vehicle parked near Argyle and Selma avenues, she said.

When they arrived at the scene, the gendarmes found the victim with gunshot wounds. He was taken to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, authorities said. The suspect was last seen wearing a black shirt and shorts and fled the scene in a white Mercedes-Benz, police told KTLA-TV Channel 5.

The victim was between 20 and 30 years old. His identity has not been revealed.

The shooting comes less than a week after a gunman killed two people in the same neighborhood. Marvin Francell Williams, 32, of Compton is suspected of being in connection with the deaths of Nadia Campbell, 35, and Ajani Patridge, 40, authorities said. The LAPD said he remains at large.
