A man is dead after an altercation with another man resulted in gunfire near a Metro Red Line station in downtown Los Angeles late Friday night.

The victim, a 36-year-old man, argued with another man, 23, outside a Metro station near Hill and 1st streets at 11:58 p.m. Friday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The younger man pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots at the older man, who was struck at least once, police said.

He was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The shooter, meanwhile, fled on foot.

While it remains to be seen if the shooting was gang-related, police did confirm that the victim was not homeless.
