May 28, 2011 | 12:21 pm

A man was killed early Saturday and another wounded in a shooting outside an East Hollywood club.

The victim, believed to be between 20 and 35 years old, was in a verbal dispute with the suspect before he was shot several times about 1:25 a.m. outside Little Temple, in the 4500 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, said Los Angeles police Officer Sara Faden.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. A Los Angeles County coroner’s official would not release his name and age, pending notification of next of kin.

A male bystander was shot in the leg during the gunfire and is listed in stable condition. No suspects were taken into custody.

Anyone with additional information about the incident is asked to contact the sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
