One man was killed, and another critically wounded in the shooting. Cops say the gunman fired several rounds, then took off on a bicycle.

The shooting happened on Hill Street and 23rd, near the 10 and 110 freeways. One person was killed and another wounded in the early morning shooting. It's not clear what sparked the argument.

On Sunday, 16-year-old Ruben Chavera was shot and killed while standing on a sidewalk in Baldwin Hills.
