LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Two women were shot dead at a camp party in southern Los Angeles, authorities said.
Investigators said the women were at a large gathering overnight when the incidents took place on S. Hill Street and West 32nd Street.
Before Sunday, 2 a.m., the authorities received the first gun call. When they arrived, they found a large group of people at the scene.
One of the victims was found on the sidewalk near the camp, while the second victim was pronounced dead in the camp.
Police said both women appear to be in their 20s or early 30s.
“At this point we are editing the scene,” said Lt. Ryan Rabbett from the LAPD. “We explored the area and found cameras. We spoke to witnesses. And right now, the detectives are continuing their efforts to process this scene. “A description of the suspect or suspects was not available.
According to witnesses, at least one of the women was approached by the shooter on foot before she was killed.
A motive for the shootings remained unknown.
“We don’t know exactly what the event was for, but there were a lot of people here,” said Rabbett.
Investigators say there are several surveillance cameras on the street that hopefully will help them find out what happened and although some people have stayed they believe there are more witnesses.
It’s not clear how many shooters there were, but police believe the incident either started indoors and was buried outdoors, or vice versa. Numerous rounds were fired at both locations.
