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.

And TMZ's reason for posting this? Celebrity news, while not enriching, can be an entertaining diversion from our everyday lives; reporting violence and bloodshed for the sake of violence and bloodshed have no place here, nor anywhere for that matter.

i thought were laws on the books about murdering people...if that is the case why do people still do it? maybe get rid of all guns and no on will have guns..except law breakers...outlaw drugs and no one will have drugs except people really think if guns were illegal this guy wouldnt have that gun and do the same illegal murder?

The Mayans predicted the end of civilization. Here you have it: uncivilized people shooting into a crowd and uncivilized TMZ for posting the video in the first place.

The shooting with the victim down should have been edited out of the video.

Thank God a celebrity, gay activities or a white child wasn't shot!!. Obama, the FBI, CIA, Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, National Guard, Boy Scouts would be activated--the killer would be apprehended before he could car-jack a ride to his baby's mama crib, Obama with a fake tear would be on TV "condemning" the "tragic event". The LAPD would have to work... it would have been crazy. But since it was just ghetto/barrio riff-raff the mayor will come out with a "statement" and the cops will go back to their hiding spots to sleep, poke chicks and smoke pot.

This is just another weekend of gun violence in America. I think America is getting so used to gun violence that before long people won't even care about mass shootings like that one in Connecticut where 20 elementary school kids were slaughtered with an assault rifle.

Does America want to just get used to this madness or what? All so the right winger NRA gun fanatics will be happy?

I'm sure all the gun fanatics insist that MORE GUNS are the answer! If only a white card carrying NRA was there with his fully automatic AK-47 then this would never have happened.

The NRA won't be happy until every school teacher, every grandma and every 12 year old kid is toting a gun. THEN, America will have a civil society and nobody will actually use their guns. Right?
