Man dies in hail of bullets on Hollywood Boulevard
A young man died after a shooting on a busy stretch of Hollywood Boulevard early Sunday morning.
The victim, identified only as a man in his twenties, was standing on the sidewalk on Hollywood Boulevard near Las Palmas Avenue at about 2:30 a.m. when he was shot multiple times at close range, said LAPD Sgt. Raul Jovel.
He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police have detained seven people who were at the scene for questioning, but it's unclear what their involvement was, Jovel said.
