Luis Flores, a 66-year-old Latino, was shot several times in the 2000 block of East El Segundo Boulevard in Willowbrook on July 25, according to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.

Flores, of Los Angeles, was killed on the sidewalk outside a residence known as a site for cockfights, according to a coroner’s official.

Sheriff's officials said Flores got into an argument with another man about 2:40 p.m.

"Apparently the argument escalated with both men producing handguns and they started shooting at each other," said  Deputy Derrick Thompson.

Flores died at the scene, authorities said. The suspect, who fled, is believed to have been injured in the gunfight.
