BOYLE HEIGHTS (CBSLA.com) — An argument outside a bar left one man dead and another injured early Monday morning in Boyle Heights.

The shooting happened around 1 a.m. in the 2100 block of East Cesar Chavez Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

A security guard reported hearing four to five gunshots outside the bar and found a 21-year-old Hispanic man dead on the sidewalk.

Another man, also 21, was found suffering from a gunshot wound to his back, officials said. He was transported to County USC Medical Center in stable condition.

“The investigation revealed the motive for the shooting to be a result of a verbal dispute.  The suspect and the weapon are outstanding,” police said.
