Los Angeles: Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Area Gang Unit are seeking the public's help in identifying the suspect responsible for shooting a man. The incident was captured on video surveillance.

On February 2, 2019, around 4:10 a.m., an argument occurred inside of a business located in the 3000 block of Sunset Boulevard. That argument resulted in the male suspect being removed from the location by a security guard and one additional male. The suspect became enraged, removed a handgun from his waistband and shot the additional male. The suspect entered a dark colored, 4-door Range Rover, and fled east on Sunset Boulevard.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene and transported the male victim to a local hospital. He was listed in stable condition and has since been released.

The suspect is described as a 35-year-old male Asian. He stands 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds.
