HYDE PARK, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man was fatally shot during an argument Saturday near a Metro Station in Hyde Park, authorities said.
The shooting happened around 12:43 p.m. on the walkway near the Hyde Park K Line Station on Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Investigators said the victim and the suspect got into some sort of argument. That's when the victim walked toward the Metro station platform when the suspect opened fire, shooting multiple rounds, according to police.
