One dead, one injured while filming in East Hollywood – NBC Los Angeles

One man was killed and another injured in a shooting in the Rampart Village neighborhood of Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Los Angeles Police Department said officers were called to 300 block on Vermont Avenue near Beverly Boulevard at 11:54 p.m. on Monday, where the shooting took place.

When LAPD officers arrived at the scene, they found a man dead on the sidewalk outside the Avenue Hotel where the shooting took place. LAFD officials tried to save the man’s life but were late.

Another man was pronounced dead at the scene and another was taken to hospital in critical condition, an LAPD spokeswoman said.

The two men who shot at each other were checked into the hotel, according to the authorities.

According to LAPD Lieutenant Ryan Rabbett, three people in custody were taken to a local station to be interviewed, but they are not identified as suspects.

“We only consider them as witnesses,” he said.

Vermont Avenue was closed for investigation but reopened to commuters around 5:30 a.m. Investigators are still trying to find out what led to the shooting.

Further details were not immediately known.
