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.

This is regular news, not celebrity news. Are you going to start reporting on every crime that takes place in Hollywood, because there would be a lot to cover.

This video actually captures 2 shootings. Look closely to the right of the shooter with the black jacket with white sleeves. He shoots the guy coming towards him

Do instead of turning this over to the police, I'm sure TMZ thought it was smart to show someone get killed just because they are more deperate for attention then doing anything the right way

Once upon a time, you could go to Hollywood and maybe see a really big star at a club.

Now if they go out to a club it is usually at a very exclusive place like Soho House where all the celebs just talk to each other.

If a really big star went to a club like this they would have to have 3 huge security guards with them to escort them to a VIP room away from the thugs and gangbangers and other low lifes.

Hope this video helps the cops catch the lunatics quickly before they skip town.

Is anyone surprised given the background of some of these clubgoers? The lyrics in the music played at clubs are so, well, so "inspiring" for something like this to happen. Just watch some of those trashy videos which do nothing positive for our violent society and you'll see why something such as this is bound to happen. My condolences to the victim and family.

If you have more than 2 black people out in public violence WILL break out, it's inevitable........

Glad your photog caught it all. Totally stoked that you posted a video of someone being murdered. Hope it bumps up the ratings among the population that enjoys this filth. I'm done. See ya, TMZ.

Come on, you write for a living. You meant "throes", not "throws" of a massive brawl.

It must feel real good to sit behind a computer and spew your racist bs. All racist feel inferior to whom they are projecting their hate towards. They will never spew their bs to the face of one person of the race.... Topic: this footage should have been provided to law enforcement...Someone is dead and their is a family looking for justice.
