A man was killed and another injured in a shooting at a hookah lounge in Valley Glen early Tuesday, officials said.
The two men were seated in the Sky Hookah Lounge on Block 13000 of Victory Boulevard when they were approached by another man around 12:11 a.m., said Officer Lizeth Lomeli, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
The three men were seen talking when the suspect pulled out a pistol and shot one of the men, Lomeli said. The second man tried to intervene, she said, and was also shot by the gunman.
The suspect, who was only described as being around 65, was last seen running south through the parking lot, Lomeli said.
A lounge employee confirmed the shooting had taken place but declined to comment on the incident.
The two victims were taken to a nearby hospital, where one of the men was pronounced dead.
