As the Abbot Kinney Festival winded down last night, shots were fired, hitting a man and a woman. "The shooting may have been due to a dispute," Cecil Manresa of the LA Fire Department said in an e-mail alert at 10:10 p.m. "Both patients were critical and transported to a local hospital." But later, one victim, Adam Pacheco, died. The other victim, a 25-year-old woman, was still critical with a gunshot wound to her face. The suspect is a male Hispanic, about 5 feet 9 inches, medium build, with shoulder-length dark hair and dark clothing, according to CBS2.
