[Updated at 11:10 p.m.: Three people were killed and seven others wounded Saturday night during a shooting outside a Pico Rivera restaurant, where a motorcycle club was throwing a party, authorities said.]

Three people were killed and at least one person was wounded Saturday night during a shooting outside a Pico Rivera restaurant, where a motorcycle club was throwing a party, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 6:45 p.m. at Falcone’s Pizza in the 9200 block of Slauson Avenue. Sheriff’s deputies found the bodies of two adults near the restaurant’s front door and a third in an alley near the restaurant. A fourth person was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Details about the shooting and the names of the victims were not available Saturday night. The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

Richard Hayes, 48, of Pico Rivera, said he was on his way to a party held by the Old School motorcycle club at the restaurant and heard about a dozen shots while he was trying to park his car. He added that he thought the victims might be members of the club.

Motorcycles were parked all around the restaurant Saturday night. After the shooting, sheriff’s deputies blocked off portions of Slauson near Falcone’s and placed tents over the bodies.
