The shooting happened just before 1 p.m. near Melrose and Stanley avenues, Los Angeles police spokeswoman Officer Rosario Cervantes said. One man in his mid-20s was declared dead at the scene, and the second was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation determined that the two men were standing outside when they were shot near the intersection, which includes a Starbucks, Urban Outfitters and several other retail shops.

Police say they are looking for a silver Hyundai that drove eastbound from the scene shortly after the shooting.

No arrests have been made, and a description of the shooter has not yet been released.
