Five people were shot, three of them fatally, in a residential Inglewood neighborhood, officials said.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) — Five people were shot, four of them fatally, early Sunday morning at a home in Inglewood, officials said.

The shooting occurred about 1:30 a.m. in the 1300 block of North Park Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Three people were pronounced dead at the scene, and two others were transported to a hospital, a Fire Department spokesperson said.

One person died while being transported to the medical center, Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts told ABC7. The surviving victim, a man, was listed in critical condition; that person has an extensive criminal history and indicated he had a gang affiliation, the mayor said.

The deceased individuals were not immediately identified.

Butts described the incident was an “ambush-style” shooting, adding that multiple suspects were involved and shell casings from an assault-style rifle were found at the scene. At least one handgun was also used, the mayor said.

Initial reports that the shooting occurred at a house party were not confirmed.

News footage from the scene showed a woman consoling another woman who was overcome with grief.

A man was initially held back by police officers when he tried to approach one of the victims who was lying on the ground in front of a home, treated by firefighter-paramedics. The man then briefly comforted the wounded victim, who was placed in an ambulance and taken to a hospital.

No one was in custody in connection with the killings. Descriptions of the suspects were not available.
