LOS ANGELES - A man was killed after bullets went flying outside the Westfield Century City mall following an argument Monday night, police said.
Police were called to the 10200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard just before 10:30 p.m. and found the victim with at least one gunshot wound, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Two women were involved in a fight that started inside Javier's restaurant and moved into the courtyard and sidewalk outside the eatery. Two men got involved when one of them pulled out a gun and fired several shots, which left a trail of blood, police said.
The suspect then ran through the parking garage and eastbound on Santa Monica Blvd.
The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, LAPD said.
The victim's name has not been released.
The suspect was described as an African-American man, between ages 25-30, 5 feet 7 inches tall, and weighs 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
Police say the incident may have been gang-related and continue searching for the gunman and anyone else connected to the shooting.
Police will canvass surveillance video and are asking witnesses to come forward.
Anyone with information is asked to contact LAPD.
The investigation is ongoing.
