HOLLYWOOD – A man from Providence Village, Texas was identified Monday as the victim of a fatal shooting in Hollywood.
Antonio Washington was 30 years old, according to the coroner’s office.
The shooting occurred about 7 p.m. Wednesday at Argyle and Selma avenues, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
Officers learned the man identified as Washington 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.
Paramedics took Washington to a hospital, where he died, police said.
“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.
