The shooting took place near Hammon Place just south of Westminster Boulevard. The Huntington Beach Police Department confirmed that a shooting took place but referred additional questions to a spokesman at the scene.

The spokesman did not immediately return calls for comment. It was unclear whether the two people were fatally shot and why Huntington Beach police were in the neighboring city.
