One man was killed and another injured in separate shootings in Los Angeles County on Sunday.

A 26-year-old man was shot in the chest when he and two friends left a bar in Westwood and got into an argument with four men in the parking lot, police said.

The victim was hospitalized in stable condition at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after the shooting, which took place about 2 a.m. at 1037 Broxton Avenue, Los Angeles Police Officer Mike Lopez said.

The victim and two friends had just exited a bar and were confronted by the four suspects in the parking lot, where an argument ensued, Lopez said.

“One suspect pointed a gun at the victim and shot him in the chest,” Lopez said.

The suspects fled the scene in a silver-colored Nissan, he said.

The officer did not name the establishment which the victims exited, but the address he gave corresponds to Barney’s Beanery.

In Hawaiian Gardens, a 50-year-old man was shot to death, authorities say.

Deputies responded about 9:20 a.m. to an assault with a deadly weapon call in the 12200 block of 224th Street, Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said.

“Upon arrival, they discovered the victim, a male Hispanic adult, sitting in the driver’s seat of a green compact car, suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso, Navarro-Suarez said.

Family members said the man was a 50-year-old husband and father of three grown children, ABC7 reported from the scene.
