Los Angeles police responded to Fixins Soul Kitchen, near Olympic Boulevard and Figueroa Street, after a shooting was reported around 6:15 p.m.
A victim was taken to a hospital and later died from his injuries, according to the LAPD.
It’s unclear if gunfire erupted inside or outside the restaurant. Aerial footage captured by AIR7 HD showed ambulances and a heavy police presence at the entrance of the restaurant.
Police say the suspect escaped in a white Honda, possibly an SUV.
The shooting happened near Crypto.com Arena, but there was not an event at the venue Tuesday.
