The shooting happened after Hu walked into an employment agency and got into an argument with someone, said Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office.

That person pulled out a gun at shot Hu in the face, Winter said. The shooter is described in a Sheriff's Department news release as an Asian man.

Hu was shot about 9 p.m. and pronounced dead at the scene at 9:31 p.m., Winter said. Sheriff's homicide detectives are assisting Monterey Park police in the investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call sheriff's homicide detectives at 323-890-5500.
