Police were searching Saturday for two suspects believed to have carried out a late-night attack at a party in Sylmar, authorities said.

Two people were shot –- one in the knee and the other in the foot –- at a party in the 14600 block of Astoria Street. A third victim was stabbed in the stomach, Los Angeles police officer Gregory Baek said.

The attack occurred shortly before midnight Friday. Police offered little information on the suspects, describing them only as Hispanic males. The incident may have been gang related, Baek said.
