Hollywood Nightclub Brawl

Clubgoer Shot Dead (VIDEO)

1/14/2013 5:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

A man was shot dead outside a Hollywood nightclub early Sunday morning in the throes of a massive brawl ... and our photog captured it all.

Cops tell us ... It started inside Empire nightclub ... where several fights broke out between some women ... before it moved outside.

You see women in the video throwing punches, pulling hair, slapping etc.  

Within minutes the violence escalated into all out mayhem ... dozens more joined in -- men and women.

Suddenly ... a man in a grey sweatshirt pulls a gun ... takes aim -- and two shots are clearly heard.

Moments later, you see a man lying dead in the middle of the street -- and it appears the victim was the intended target.

Another man was also shot during the brawl.  He's in stable condition.

The shooter was not apprehended. The LAPD is looking for him.

Senseless & sad. And it is "throes" not "throws".

Seems too stressful to go clubbing these days. I'm glad my drinking clubbing days are long behind me.

Wow ...    

What happened to the good ole days, when it was safe to have a drink and dance a little at a nightclub? Is anything going on in the clubs worth dying for, let alone killing someone over?

Death videos now the last frontier of entertainment? The crowds loved it when the French mobs were chopping off the rich's heads you know.

So if NRA thinks rational and safe people have guns then why do sooo many incidents like this occur??? Stricter GUN LAWS = less violence w/ guns. If the guns are soo well regulated by NRA policies then how do people get them that are not checked?? By the morons who had their backgrounds checks

What a senseless death over 2 girls pulling each others hair. This is the problem of arming nutjobs. After alcohol and fist fight they think shooting at people is the best way to deal with it.

Now this is what I'm talking about. TMZ will show video of an actual murder but they won't show Sofia Vergara's nipple. Come on.

Yep, this is the way that we deal with conflicts in America ... over the barrel of a gun usually. It wouldn't be a typical American fight if somebody didn't pull out a gun and somebody got shot.

The rest of the civilized world thinks we've lost our freaking minds when it comes to guns.

About the only country I can think of with more gun violence than America is Syria and they are in a super violent civil war against a monstrous dictator who's torturing and killing all the time.

You know this is such a shame what has happened to Hollywood. I used to go to clubs there10 years ago and you would never see anything remotely close to this happen. Then... it got inundated with ghetto thug yard apes and it went to sh1t. Happens all the time now. Now before you call my comments racist take a look at the make up of the people fighting, the shooter and crowd. nuff said can't be disputed. Now put a sock in it biscuit lips!

You stopped the video too short - shouldn't there be a bike riding police officer coming in anytime soon? Not sure how long this video is but clearly the police are slow at acting on street fights.

Surprise surprise. Another thug loser who has no value of human life. Dude is on camera killing someone. He will die in prison. What a loser!!! Only culture in the world where you get street cred for spending the rest of your life in prison. I'm sure he will now be able to go hang with his daddy in prison. Complete losers
