1 dead, 4 wounded at warehouse party in South LA

An investigation continues after one person was killed and four others, including teenagers, were wounded after gunfire erupted on a street in South Los Angeles late Sunday night, police said. 

Authorities said dozens of people were gathered at a warehouse party near Hill and 35th streets. According to preliminary reports, there were several people standing outside when a car pulled up, and suddenly, partygoers found themselves in the middle of a shootout as some returned gunfire around 11 p.m.

One of the possible suspects was struck by gunfire and drove away from the scene. Shortly after, he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the back of a truck. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, officials said.

It appears he was the only person inside the vehicle. However, there may have been passengers who got out of the vehicle and left him to die. 

Four of the victims, reportedly between the ages of 16 and 29, were taken to a hospital in a private vehicle. Their names have not been released, and their conditions are unknown.

Investigators believe there are at least four suspects.

"We’re still trying to determine if this was gang-related [or] gang motivated. We do know it was a party and we’re still trying to sort out the details," said LAPD Lt. Ryan Rabbett.
