While driving home early this morning, a Baldwin Hills nightclub owner was shot to death, reports LA Now. The 67-year-old man was shot twice in the chest as he pulled into his driveway, driving a $300,000 Rolls Royce. The car then rolled into a neighbor's house across the street.

Police believe that he was followed home, although the case is in the early stages of investigation. His wife reports that she heard a gunshot around 2:30 a.m.
