Police are looking for suspects who fled after a man was shot dead near the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Los Angeles Tuesday morning, authorities said.
The shooting was reported around 4:50 a.m. on the 800 block of West Olympic Boulevard, said Officer Lizeth Lomeli, an LAPD spokeswoman.
When officers arrived, they found a man with multiple gunshot wounds, police said. Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics pronounced the man dead. His identity was not released.
Several suspects fled in a white SUV in an unknown direction, Lomeli said. No further information about the suspects was available. Early reports of the shooting described the suspects as three men escaping in a white Rolls-Royce SUV, at least one of whom was armed with a handgun.
The case is being investigated as a homicide and detectives are working to determine whether the shooting took place in the hotel lobby or parking lot.
“Of course, given the location and the population density, there is a lot of camera footage that our detectives have to go through,” Lomeli said. “We are not yet releasing images where we are looking for suspects.”
