A woman was shot dead in a Hollywood subway station early Sunday morning.
The shooting was reported at Hollywood / Vine station around 5 a.m. The unidentified woman suffered multiple gunshot wounds, according to police.
Witnesses were performing CPR when officers from the LAPD and MTA arrived. The woman died in a hospital.
Witnesses reported an “excited” man walking up and down the train and having an argument with the victim, the LAPD said. The gunman shot her and got off the B-Line train as it stopped in Hollywood and Vine, police said.
The man drove onto Hollywood Boulevard.
The B (Red) Line connects downtown Los Angeles with North Hollywood in the San Fernando Valley. It has stops near Grand Central Market, LA Convention Center, Staples Center, MacArthur Park, Pantages Theater, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Universal Studios.
No arrests were reported early Sunday. The attacker was described by police as a man wearing a blue jacket and blue shorts. He also wore a dark hat and a surgical mask.
At first it was not clear whether the victim and the shooter knew each other.
Anyone involved in the shootings can contact Homicide Investigators at the West Bureau at 213-382-9470.
Trains skipped Hollywood / Vine station while the death was investigated and bus shuttles were requested, Metro said.
