Investigation underway after 2 killed in Hollywood shooting; suspect outstanding

HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two people were killed in a shooting in Hollywood overnight, prompting a large police response in the area amid the search for the gunman.

The shooting happened shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday near Carlos Avenue and Gower Street, according to authorities. The victims, only identified as a man and woman, were both shot multiple times and died at the scene.

The woman's young children were found near the shooting scene, but they were not hurt.

Investigators said the shooter fled from the scene and was last seen heading northbound on Vista Del Mar. The gunman was described as being a man in his early 20s who was wearing a white T-shirt.

The neighbor whose home surveillance camera captured some of the shooting, including what appears to be the suspect running away, said the whole incident is disturbing to him.

"To actually have two people gunned down outside my door is heartbreaking, it's gut-wrenching...," said Makiri Duckett. "I'm not a fearful person... people don't scare me. I'm not scared of people...I'm scared of what human beings possess."

A motive for the shooting has not yet been determined, but investigators said the victims and suspect might've known each other.

"We're still talking to people to determine exactly what happened, but it's possibly a domestic incident," said Lt. John Radtke.
