Two men were wounded early Friday after a gunman fired at least two shots outside a popular Hollywood nightclub known for its young celebrity clientele, authorities said.
A fight began on the sidewalk outside Les Deux Cafe, on the 1600 block of North Las Palmas Avenue , and spilled into a parking lot about 2 a.m., police said. One victim is a security guard, LAPD Officer April Harding said.
He was treated at a hospital for minor injuries and released. The second man, who was not identified, remained hospitalized and was being treated for a gunshot wound to the stomach.
The gunman fled, Harding said.
The French-themed cafe and club is a popular hangout for celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.
It frequently has been used for after-parties following events such as the Emmy Awards.
A club manager on duty at the time of the shooting said the altercation did not involve Les Deux patrons and occurred outside the building.
