HOLLYWOOD, Calif., - Two people have been arrested for the alleged shooting death of a 23-year-old man and wounding another outside the Hollywood Palladium, police said today.
Travius Shearer and another victim were shot at 11:40 p.m. Friday on the sidewalk right next to a party bus shortly after a dispute broke out, said Officer Rosie Herrera of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Shearer was taken to an area hospital, where he later died from his injuries; while the other gunshot victim, a 19-year-old Los Angeles resident, remains in critical condition, according to Herrera.
Both victims were passengers on the party bus, she said.

The case will be presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office for filing consideration on Tuesday, the officer said.
