A late night shooting in Koreatown has claimed one life, and left another person wounded. The incident took place just after 2:00 in the morning at the M2 Cafe & Karaoke bar at 4001 W. Sixth Street, according to KTLA. "One of the victims was shot in the head and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was declared dead. The other victim suffered a graze wound to his head and was expected to survive." No arrests were made at the scene. M2 is described by one Yelp reviewer as being a bar/lounge up front with the karaoke rooms in the rear; it is not clear from available reports if the shooting took place in or outside the venue.
