The shooting was reported about 11 p.m. on Wilcox Avenue just north of Sunset Boulevard.

When officers arrived, they found the victim, identified as 21-year-old Brian Delatorre, lying in an alley next to his apartment building. He had jumped out of the window of the one-story apartment, Los Angeles Police Department homicide Lt. John Radtke said.

He was transported to a hospital where he was declared dead.

Police searched for the two killers, described as Hispanic and in their 20s. One was wearing a Dodgers-style jacket.

Two men who fit that description were detained a few blocks away at Selma and Ivar avenues, outside a nightclub. They were taken to Hollywood Station for questioning, Radtke said.

Police believe the shooting could be gang-related. The victim was associated with a gang, Radtke said.
