Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) 77th Homicide Squad detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect(s) who were involved in a shooting in South Los Angeles.

Early this morning at around 2:05 a.m., two men were walking to a night club located on the 2300 block of West 54th Street.  When they entered the front doorway of the club, the suspect shot both men numerous times.  The first victim managed to run into the club before collapsing, while the second fell to the ground in the entryway of the club.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and pronounced the first victim dead.  The other was transported to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for gunshot wounds.

There is no description of the suspect at this time.  

The identity of the first victim is being withheld until his family has been notified.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Criminal Gang Homicide Division, 77th Homicide Squad Detectives Richard Guzman and William Ritch at 213-485-1383.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call     Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
