The shooting happened outside a chartered bus on Sunset Blvd., Nov. 9, 2013, (KTLA)

Wilson and an alleged 17-year-old accomplice, whose name was not released because of his age, face murder charges in connection with the shooting, Officer Rosario Herrera of the LAPD Hollywood Community Police Station told KTLA 5.

One man was killed and a second injured in the shooting on Friday night at 11:45 p.m. in the 6100 block of Sunset Boulevard, police said.

The bus had traveled to Hollywood from Compton when the shooting unfolded, according to the LAPD.

The shooting happened shortly after the party bus stopped at the corner of El Centro and Sunset to let people off to use the restroom, police said.

An argument broke out as the victims re-boarded the bus, leading to a shooting in front of the Hollywood Palladium, according to police.

Paramedics transported the two victims to an area hospital, but one died, police said.  The second man remained in critical condition Sunday.

The victims’ names were not being released, police told KTLA 5.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office was expected to file murder charges against Wilson and the 17-year-old on Tuesday after the Veteran’s Day holiday, the LAPD said.
