The incident was reported around 2:15 a.m. in the 700 block of East 3rd Street in downtown L.A.
Two 26-year-old men were in an “altercation” when one of them got in a vehicle and struck the other before fleeing, said LAPD Officer Drake Madison.
The victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
