A man was fatally shot when another man shot him in the chest outside of a Hollywood club early this morning.It happened at about 2 a.m. just as Premiere Supper Club on Las Palmas Avenue was closing, ABC reports. According to police, an altercation at the club spilled out into the street, and that’s when the suspect got out of his car, walked up to the victim and shot him in the chest before getting back in the car and taking off.

The 38-year-old victim was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he died in surgery.

A description of the suspect hasn't been released yet, but police believe there were three to four other men in the black four-door sedan with him.
