Hey, if you're asked to leave a club you might understandably be upset. What not to do, though, is to come back shooting your handgun at the crowd outside, like one man did early this morning at a Hollywood club.

The man was ejected from La Vida just after 1 a.m. Friday, according to L.A Now. He returned about ten minutes later after getting his handgun from his car, say the Los Angeles Police Department, and fired multiple shots into the crowd.

The gunfire struck and wounded a security officer and a woman standing nearby.

The LAPD say they are looking at surveillance footage from the club, and reviewing information logged into the club's ID swipe machine in order to determine the shooter's identity. The suspect is thought to be in his 20s, and had been booted out of La Vida along with two friends for being unruly, reports Hollywood Patch.

The security guard was treated at the hospital and is in stable condition, while the female club patron declined hospital treatment and is said to be fine.
