Man shot to death outside Bossa Nova in Hollywood

A man was shot and killed Tuesday in Hollywood.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood Station responded at 2:10 a.m. to 7181 Sunset Blvd. outside the Bossa Nova Restaurant on multiple calls of a shooting, where they found an unresponsive 23-year-old man, said LAPD Officer Drake Madison.

According to KTLA:

The victim was sitting in his vehicle when he saw several people approach his female companion outside and try to rob her, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Madison said. He got out of the car and was then shot and killed.The suspects then fled the scene, leaving the wounded victim in the street near his car.

Police said there may be up to eight suspects involved in the incident who are on the run.

The wounded man died at the scene, Madison said. His name was withheld, pending notification of his relatives.

According to witnesses, the suspects drove away from the scene in a black Nissan and are described only as Black males with handguns, Madison said. No arrests were reported.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call 877-LAPD-247.

This didn’t happen in West Hollywood. If wehoville wants to be crime obsessed fine but publishing crimes from outside West Hollywood to make our community look bad makes no sense. Start a separate Hollywood paper if you’re so obsessed with their crime.

“According to witnesses, the suspects…are described only as Black males with handguns…”
Congratulations on accurately describing the suspects, rather than cowing to false accusations of racism.
Black leaders’ strategy of fighting racism, consists largely of intimidation, and obstruction of discussion, rather than good-faith, fact and logic based discussion. This gives the illusion of reducing racism. The actual result is to perpetuate racism. One way it does this, is to block addressing why blacks commit violent crime at rates far greater than nonblacks.

Black men with hoodies and guns murdering people twice at Bossa Nova, flash mobs of black men and women robbing department stores, black men committing hate crimes against Asians, black men robbing patrons sitting in restaurants in Melrose area, WEHO, and Beverly Hills.

But It’s all because of racism? Can’t understand why the Police of all ethnicities would racially profile these guys?

12% of the population and 100% of their own problem and now ours. Obama and Michelle must be so proud.

Exactly Isn’t ironic that people who see a narrative they don’t want to admit to violence when it comes to the obvious they aren’t using a squawk box but they sure use it when it is consequential to race baiting! Call it for what it is there is violence in our area and crime sprees in the Hollywood area, Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, on Melrose Avenue and Melrose Place at the Grove on Sunset and Santa Monica and Crescent Heights at Whole Foods at Fairfax affecting all races by deranged people or groups of robbery rings and thugs terrorizing people… Read more »

How terribly sad. I hope they catch them and when they do I hope they throw every bit of the law at them.

Heavy gang crime reigns now on the Westside.
That is why they love Far Left Demonuts, NO jail or bail!
From that wimpy Queen Garzetti, to Gascon, and the biggest hypocrite of them all, Newsom.

Can’t argue with any of that. But low info voters put it in motion. People need to read what they actually are voting for. Just because they tell you prop 47 or 109 will reduce crime doesn’t mean it will. So we got just the opposite. We are now reaping the unrewards of progressive nonsense…even the word progressive is misnomer.

I’ll be watching for more details on this.

This tragedy is even greater when the victim was so young. He may well have had sixty or seventy years of life stolen from him.

You’ll note, that Tolerance Americans, never waste any breath on demanding that Crime Spree Americans give up their guns or stop shooting people – Crime Spree Americans are protected by Tolerance supported District Attorneys across the country. Tolerance Americans vote for Propositions in California that mandate early release of violent felons, or minimize bail requirements of recidivist criminals. On the other hand, Tolerance Americans fight tooth and nail to take away your right to protect yourself. They demonize legal gun owners, and erode the legally protected use of deadly force, and lobby hard to mitigate constitutional rights to due process.… Read more »

Nonsense. What a bunch of jibberish. Nobody wants this going on in their neighborhoods. This has nothing to do with any of the nonsense you’re spewing. These are criminals and the “Tolerance Americans” don’t support crime any more than anyone else.

We’ll see IF they get caught what Gascone does with their bail and charges.

If folks were upstanding and knew how to behave they wold not require a gun to protect themselves. Folks devoid of social responsibility and common sense generally choose violence over reason, an endless cycle.

No it’s not. If someone tries you kill you, then you kill them. Cycle over.

Agree Jack. Kyle showed us that and thankfully he was tried by a jury that decided his fate based on the evidence instead of pressure from a misinformed left wing mob.

No, you are not right. Now their buddies, kill you, your buddies kill them… endless cycle of madness and you say that you support this by allowing access to murder instruments. Nowhere in the civilized western world is the killing rate so many x-fold as it is in the US since they have radical gun control. Common Sense, you are right, Jack you are not.

Every single member of house that votes for gun control have carry and conceal licenses. That includes Pelosi, Feinstein, and Newsom… Your just too stupid to understand the real world.

You are so right Common Sense. All the thousands of innocent victims of violent crime every year in this country would still be alive today if they only were more upstanding citizens and knew how to behave. Best argument for not being able to defend yourself from non upstanding and misbehaving individuals I have ever heard. It’s just common sense.
