One person died and three others were injured in a shooting in front of a downtown Los Angeles hotel early on Sunday morning, police said.

The shooting occurred at about 2:20 a.m. at the Standard Hotel, said Rosario Herrera, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department. She did not release the gender of the victim or have information on what prompted the shooting.

"There was an altercation of some kind," Herrera said.
