A man was in custody Friday for allegedly shooting another man to death in Hollywood.

The shooting occurred about 7 p.m. Wednesday at Argyle and Selma avenues, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

Officers learned that a man in his 30s was shot by another man during an argument, and the wounded man got into a vehicle and tried to drive away but crashed into several nearby parked cars, the LAPD reported.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he died. His name was withheld, pending notification of his relatives.

“West Bureau homicide detectives identified the suspect and a warrant was issued for the arrest of 27-year-old Mario David Ramirez, a resident of La Puente,” the LAPD said in a statement.

On Thursday at about 8 p.m., LAPD Fugitive Task Force personnel arrested Ramirez in La Puente, and he was booked on a no-bail murder warrant, police said.

Detectives plan to present the case for filing consideration to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office on Monday.

Anyone with information on the crime was urged to call detectives at 213-382-9470, or 877-LAPD-247.
