Los Angeles police responded around 5:30 a.m. to find the second victim standing in the street in Koreatown with a gunshot wound. Officers heard a shot and found the gunman on the sidewalk several houses away with a self-inflicted wound to the head.

The suspect and second victim -- who was in critical condition, but expected to live --were not related but longtime friends, reports KTLA. According to police, the motive in that shooting was apparently caused by an ongoing dispute.
