Gunfire at a party in South L.A. kills one person, injures three

A shooting outside a party in South Los Angeles early Sunday morning left one man dead and three people hospitalized.

Two men opened fire on a group of people at about 2:25 a.m. outside a home on the 800 block of West 84th Street, hitting three of them, said Sgt. David Craig at the LAPD's 77th Street station.

One of the those shot was pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital. Of the other two, one was shot in both legs and the other in one leg, were in stable condition, Craig said. A fourth victim, who suffered a fractured skull while running from the shooters, was in intensive care.

The authorities released neither the names of the victims nor descriptions or a possible motive of the shooters.
