A gunman shot and wounded two men outside of a Hollywood recording studio on Friday night, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. The shooter remains at-large on Saturday, though detectives are following multiple leads.

At around 10:50 p.m. Friday night, an argument broke out in front of the Cascade Recording Studios in the 6600 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, close to Highland Avenue, according to City News Service. A man pulled out a gun and shot two others several times during the argument, and fled the scene.

Officer Mike Lopez of LAPD’s Media Relations unit tells LAist that one victim was shot in the hand. The other victim suffered wounds to his face, chest, and arm. Both victims are adult black men, and were transported to a nearby hospital. While both men are alive and stable, police describe the condition of latter victim as “serious but stable condition.”

Police describe the suspect as a black man, and say he fled the scene in a blue Acura.

Although the cause and subject of the argument is unknown, LAPD detectives are investigating the case.

Cascade Studios, which lists Beyonce, Courtney Love, and Slash as its clients, hosted an event last night headlined by Rhyme.Over.Krime, a Los Angeles based hip-hop artist. R.O.K. performed alongside the Central Californian rapper F-Teezy, in ROK That Jam.

Last year, the rapper YG was shot at a recording studio in Studio City.
