A man was shot to death early this morning on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, according to KTLA.

The victim, a 19-year-old whose name has not been released, had gotten into a fight with the suspect in front of Stefano's Two Guys From Italy Restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard near Las Palmas Avenue. The suspect shot the victim four times just before 3 a.m. this morning before fleeing. The victim tried to run away, but he collapsed on the Walk of Fame and died later at a hospital.

The victim's brother witnessed the shooting and called it in to police. Police detained five people at the scene, but witnesses said the actual shooter fled.
