Sheriff’s homicide detectives responded just before 12:30 p.m. to the restaurant in the 37200 block of 47th Street East, officials said.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
CBS2’s Juan Fernandez reported from the scene where officials said the shooting was not random.
Fernandez said about 15 people were inside the restaurant at the time of the murder.
“There was no altercation that they [witnesses] saw.
This guy just walked in through one door, shot him and left out another door. So it looked like something personal.
He had something against this individual. It wasn’t like he shot up the McDonald’s. He just shot him and left,” said LA County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina.
The suspect fled on foot.
