Shooting Outside Hollywood Club

7/6/2008 4:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man was shot multiple times outside a Hollywood club, and TMZ got shots of the getaway car.

It happened around 2:30 AM this morning, right in the middle of H-Wood -- Ivar and Sunset Blvds. There are multiple clubs nearby, but we don't know where the victim or the perp were before the incident. Our photog was walking to his car when he saw a man fire four or five rounds into another guy. The shooter jumped into a car and sped off and our photog caught the escape on tape.

The perp is Black male and was wearing a hoodie (hood was down). There was a black Hummer next to the escape car and they seemed connected.

The victim is in critical condition. Another man was also shot several times, but his injuries did not appear serious. Both were taken to the hospital.

Mouse Trap is correct....Battle of Bataan...The march, involving the forcible transfer of 75,000 American and Filipino prisoners of war[1] captured by the Japanese in the Philippines from the Bataan peninsula to prison camps, was characterized by wide-ranging physical abuse and murder, and resulted in very high fatalities inflicted upon the prisoners and civilians along the route by the armed forces of the Empire of Japan. Beheadings, cut throats and casual shootings were the more common and merciful actions — compared to bayonet stabbings, rapes, disembowelments, numerous rifle butt beatings and a deliberate refusal to allow the prisoners food or water while keeping them continually marching for nearly a week (for the slowest survivors) in tropical heat. Falling down, unable to continue moving was tantamount to a death sentence, as was any degree of protest or expression of displeasure.

#30: Canada John: Gun control does nothing to deter crime. Look at England right now with some 18 + deaths by stabbing in the city of London alone (and I think I am on the low side of the figure). What should England do: ban sale of knives now? Of course not. Crime is crime and they will find a way to get the job accomplished by any means necessary if they really want to.

Damn, is this CSI TMZ? Kudos to helping fight crime, but seeing a man sprawled out on the city street is not cool. Why not just show the get away car? And ditto #5, hope the family knows about this.

If this is a true example of how LAPD handles a shooting, it's appalling. I know they're laid back in Ca., but to WALK over to the crime scene, not check to see if the guy was dead or alive for who knows how long, that's just a sad, sad state. I can't really commend your camera guy either. While it was nice that he got the license number, surely, he could've done a lot more if he wasn't trying to get a video so badly.

MiRKED, that is not the point. This person is in critical condition and may not survive. Would you want your family member, a NON celebrity posted on the internet? Do not tell me to calm down, do you even know me? Go jump in a lake bozo! lol

You people who are cricizing TMZ for taping this apparently don't realize that here in CA those people wouldn't even have a chance of being caught without TMZ. First of all, how would YOU help a guy who's been shot multiple times? You don't know 911 hand't already been called! And for what logical reason would this guy put his camera DOWN?? Notice I said that now they have a CHANCE of being caught...welcome to L.A.! And why wouldn't they post it?? Maybe the public can help. The police don't need the video handed to them . You say TMZ posted it instead of giving it to the police like now the police can't see it...IT'S POSTED on the internet idiots!!

Poster number 30.....you are dilusional. I am from Canada...Toronto....and I guess you are forgetting the numerous that are getting gunned down. Let us also not forget the purely innocent out shopping on Boxing Day taken out by gun violence. GUN CONTROL will have no effect pal.....these guns are already illegal...the act is illegal..... Typical Canadian arrogance!

The video first shows the getaway car from behind, however, its not clear enough to view the license plate number. Maybe through computer enhansed viewing the aurhories can get the plates.

Did the TMZ employee first reach for his/her camera or cell phone....if the employee first reached for the camera, then that person should be fired or perhaps dozens of camera wielding paparazzi should camp out in front of his home for days on end with cameras constantly rolling, continuously asking, why didnt you call for help??????

Why didn't anyone cover him with a jacket? Hold his hand? Tell him help is coming?
Even that fat stupid female cop is not trained to help a man shot down?
Why are people so STUPID AND SOUL LESS?
