Man Fatally Shot At Party In Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD (CBS/AP) — Police are asking for the public’s help in trying to find a man they say pulled a gun during an argument at a gathering in Hollywood and shot one of the party-goers to death.

Lorenzo Smith of Los Angeles was shot near 1645 N. La Brea Avenue at around 3:10 a.m.

LAPD Officer Catherine Massey said Smith died at the scene.

Massey said paramedics rushed another person to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities say the gunman fled the party after the shooting.

    That’s the location of Crazy Girls Strip club

    • David Markland

      No, thats above the pawn shop. Crazy Girls is a few blocks away, south of Sunset – this is at Hollywood Blvd. And also right above the liquor store where the owner was killed a few years ago.

        it wasn’t the owner that was killed,it was one of his employees.

    Saw the window broken out above the Pawn Shop. Was that the location of the party? Saw metal pieces scattered in the street too.
