A valet died when shots rang outside a nightclub on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood early this morning. L.A. County Sheriff's detectives believe an argument began between patrons of Guys and Dolls when a black male suspect produced a handgun and shot a gun at least seven times around 2:10 a.m., according to Commander James Lopez.

Two people were wounded and a hispanic man working as a valet was fatally hit. "He was standing away from the incident, he wasn't part of that," said Lopez.

Although it is unclear what happened, TMZ cameras were rolling at the time of the incident. You can see a crowd developing in the street before shots are heard, prompting people to scream and run away.
