LOS ANGELES — Police are searching for the gunman in a gang-related shooting that killed one man and seriously wounded another in Los Angeles.

Detectives say the suspect identified himself as a member of a street gang before firing multiple shots at the two victims Tuesday evening in North Hollywood. The gunman then fled in an awaiting vehicle.

A 19-year-old man died at a hospital. His 23-year-old companion was listed in serious but stable condition. They were not immediately identified.

Investigators have not released a suspect description.
