Late Thursday night, a man and woman in their 20s were shot to death in Hollywood. Police say that their children were only steps away.
According to police, the two children of the woman were found in a car right next to where bodies were discovered at Carlos Avenue & Gower Street. They were taken to LAPD’s Hollywood Station.
According to police, the mother of the children is believed to be the deceased woman.
We are still waiting for details about the circumstances that led to the shooting.
Witnesses reported that the man ran from the scene but no arrests were made early Friday. The man was wearing a white Tshirt and was last seen running along Vista Del Mar Avenue.
According to police, the shooter probably knew the victims.
Makiri Duckett, a resident, said that several shots were fired. His security camera recorded the shooting and an argument. He stated that he heard what the shooter said. “‘No, no, no, I’m not going to prison for this.”
He said that he heard gunfire about five minutes after the argument started.
“There was another young lady who was just out there screaming to the top of her lungs, ‘Oh my god, oh my god. What did you do. What did you do?'”
Duckett claimed he gave video footage from the security camera to investigators.
“It’s heart breaking, it’s gut wrenching and, also, it’s nerve racking,”He said that bullets had ricocheted outside his front doors.
“I believe suspect probably did know the victims. It is likely a domestic incident,”John Radtke, LAPD Lieutenant, said.
