A shooting at a gathering in the Beverly Crest neighborhood of Los Angeles early Saturday morning claimed the lives of at least three people and injured four, according to police.
Beverly Crest is approximately 2 miles north of Beverly Hills.
Calls about a multi-victim shooting in the 2700 block of Ellison Drive came in around 2:30 a.m, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement. The home was a short-term rental property.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers found five victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Three were announced dead on the scene.
The three deceased victims included two men and one woman, who police say were in a vehicle parked in front of the home where the party was.
The four remaining victims, three men and one woman, were transported to local hospitals. Two are in critical condition while two are stable.
The identities of the victims have not been released.
This was not an active shooter situation, Sergeant Bruce Borihanh said in a news conference Saturday afternoon.
No information was given about the shooter, but Borihanh said police are working on identifying the “suspects.”
Police ask anyone with information on the shooting to come forward.
This marks the fourth mass shooting in California this month.
On Jan. 21, 11 people were fatally shot at a Lunar New Year event in Monterey Park, a predominantly Asian South California suburb. Two days later, seven people were killed by a shooter in Half Moon Bay, and one person was killed and several injured at a shooting in an Oakland gas station.
