A man was shot and killed Thursday on the patio of an Altadena hamburger stand.

Blood was visible on the patio outside Fair Oaks Burger at 2560 Fair Oaks Ave., at the intersection with Calaveras Street, according to reports from the scene.

The shooting occurred about 4:30 p.m., Lt. Robert Lewis of the sheriff’s Altadena Station said.

A suspect approached and argued with the victim before opening fire, striking him multiple times, he said.

The victim was taken to Huntington Memorial Hospital for treatment, Lewis said.

His death was later announced by the Sheriff’s Headquarters Bureau.

A dark gray four-door car with at least two people inside was seen leaving the area, headed east, according to the sheriff’s department.

The 2500 block of Fair Oaks Avenue was closed to accommodate the shooting investigation.
