GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- A man was shot and killed Friday evening near a busy Glendale shopping center.
According to investigators, officers responded to the 1200 block of Mariposa Street just after 5:30 p.m. after receiving a call about someone in the area with a gun.
Officers found the victim, who has not been identified, with a gunshot wound shortly after. He was rushed to the USC hospital where he later died.
AIR7 HD was above the scene as the investigation was unfolding and captured a parking lot blocked off with crime tape.
Residents in the area told ABC7 it all may have stemmed from some sort of dispute, though police have not confirmed that information.
Vosgan Mousheghin works at a store near where the shooting occurred and said he was shocked to hear a crime of that nature happened so close to his job.
"I heard the sirens, lots of cars, lots of sirens ... helicopter, I didn't know what was happening," he said. "I thought the problem was somewhere else. Looks like it was our shopping center."
Mousheghin recalled seeing the victim getting sent to the hospital.
"They put him in the ambulance. He was moving his arms, so he was alive, but later, I heard he didn't make it," he said.
The suspect remains at large, according to police. A detailed description of the suspect has not been released but police said their investigation is focusing on a black SUV left in the parking lot of the busy shopping center.
An exact make and model wasn't immediately disclosed.
"Police are checking all the surveillance cameras; the shopping center has lots of cameras," said Mousheghin. "We don't hear gunshots and that stuff much."
Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
