A man was shot to death early on Sunday morning while waiting for a bus at the intersection of Western and Wilshire in Koreatown.

Bryan Martinez Rubio, 28, was sitting on a bus bench just after 1 a.m. at the Northwest corner of the intersection when two men on foot ran up to him. LAPD Lt. Kelly Arnett told City News Service, "There were some words exchanged, and (one) pulled out a gun and shot him."

The men ran to a black pick-up truck that fled westbound on Wilshire Boulevard. Rubio was pronounced dead at the scene. Police told the LAPD that they don't have a motive for the shooting.

They said they plan to check surveillance cameras in the area for more clues about the suspects.
