This is the horrifying moment two British tourists ran for their lives before being brutally shot to death in the street while on vacation in Los Angeles.

Security camera footage filmed outside a busy bar in the Venice Beach tourist hotspot on July 30 shows the couple turning and running after a man with whom they had been arguing drew a gun.

The suspect runs after them and opens fire from a short distance behind, with one of the victims clutching his chest.

Shortly after, the gunman also shot his friend, leaving them badly wounded, before fleeing the scene.

LAPD has now named the alleged gunman as Brandon Manyo Dixon and is seeking him for attempted murder.

They describe him as armed and dangerous and urge the public to call 911 if they see him.

Police have so far released few details of the victims, describing them only as tourists from the UK.

They say the couple were involved in a verbal argument outside a packed bar just yards from famed Venice Beach, with popular attractions including Venice Boardwalk and Venice Muscle Beach.

As the tourists fled for their lives, police say Dixon opened fire, shooting them both before fleeing the scene on foot.

LAPD says in a statement: Both victims suffered significant injuries from the gunshots and were hospitalized for their injuries.

Police said Dixon should be considered armed and dangerous, and anyone who sees him should call 911 for immediate assistance.
