Lee is the crown prince of the Korean imperial family and founder of the London Trust Media. He is heir to the Joseon dynasty, which ruled Korea for centuries until 1897.

It is unknown if Lee is the victim or if he was in the Rolls-Royce when gunfire erupted. The victim has only been described by police as a man between the ages of 25 and 30.

LAPD says two male suspects fled the scene when the robbery and shooting occurred just before 4:20 p.m. in the 2800 block of Sunset Place.

Footage showed police outside the Kurve apartment building and focusing their investigation on the Rolls-Royce.

LAPD said the man was conscious and breathing after the shooting, but later said he was transported to a hospital in critical condition.
