HOLLYWOOD HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man was shot and killed following an argument outside a house party in the Hollywood Hills, prompting a search for the suspected gunman.
Officers responded to Fareholm Drive, just north of Hollywood Boulevard and east of Laurel Canyon, around 2 a.m. Wednesday after receiving multiple calls about a shooting in the area, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Detective Sam Marullo said the victim, identified as a 39-year-old man, was a guest at the party. He died at the scene.
"What we know up to this point is that there was an argument between the suspect and the victim outside of the residence, during which the suspect removed a firearm, shot the victim and fled the scene," he added.
That suspect fled the scene in a car, but investigators are still trying to determine if the suspect acted alone. Authorities could not say if the suspect was also a guest at the party.
A neighbor spoke with Eyewitness News Wednesday and said there was a poker game underway with valet service when the shooting occurred.
"One of his guests was called outside because somebody had stopped by the house that wanted to talk to him and when the guest went outside, the person who had stopped by the house had shot him," she said. "I don't know why, I don't know what the circumstances were but he shot him and he killed him."
Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
