A man was shot and killed in Hollywood and police today had two suspects in custody.
Shooting Just After 11 p.m.
The shooting occurred just after 11 p.m. Thursday in the 1500 block of
Wilcox Avenue, near Sunset Boulevard, said Sgt. Mark Cohan of the Los Angeles
Police Department’s Hollywood Division.
Shooters Kicked In Victim’s Door
The two suspects entered an apartment building and kicked in the
victim’s door before shooting him, LAPD Lt. John Radtke told reporters at the
scene. The victim, who jumped out of his apartment window to avoid the gunmen,
was pronounced dead at a hospital, Radtke said.
Suspects Fled On Foot
The two suspects fled on foot, prompting authorities to evacuate a
nearby nightclub, and were detained nearby, according to Radtke.
Wilcox Avenue was closed from Sunset Boulevard and Selma Avenue for the
City News Service.
