A manhunt was underway Tuesday for an assailant who shot and fatally wounded a 28-year-old man outside a restaurant at the Westfield Century City mall.
Officers responded to the shopping center, located in the 10200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, about 10:25 p.m. Monday and found the victim suffering from several gunshot wounds, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The victim, whose name was not immediately released, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
According to multiple reports from the scene, the men began arguing inside Javier's, a busy restaurant/bar, and went outside, where the unidentified assailant pulled out a gun and fired three shots.
A detailed description of the shooter was not immediately released by
police, who were diverting traffic from the area this morning while continuing their investigation.
