A man has been fatally shot in Hollywood, and the Los Angeles Police Department is looking for the shooter.

The shooting was reported just after 7 p.m., when police responded near the intersection of Argyle and Selma avenues, according to Officer Im.

An ambulance was requested for the victim of a gunshot wound, whom police first described as an approximately 23-year-old man but who was later said to be between 20 and 30 years old.

The victim, who apparently became involved in a dispute with the shooter, was unconscious and not breathing when police arrived, Im added. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

It is unclear how many times the victim was struck, but the attacker fired several rounds, Im said.

In his attempt to flee, the victim also drove his car into another vehicle a short distance away.

Police are seeking the shooter, who is believed to be a white or Hispanic man, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 180 pounds, and who is described as having dark hair and eyes. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and shorts, and he used a black handgun and fled in a white Mercedes-Benz, Im stated.
