Police looking for suspect who shot tourists in Venice

Police are looking for the suspect who shot two tourists in Venice earlier this summer

The Los Angeles Police Department identified the suspect as Brandon Manyo Dixon.

On July 30, Dixon, his friend and two tourists from the United Kingdom got involved in a verbal argument outside a bar in the 20 block of Windward Ave. The fight then got physical and violent. The suspect, with a gun in his hand, chased down both tourists. As the tourists were running away, the suspect shot at them then fled the scene, police reported. 

Both victims sustained significant injuries and were hospitalized.
