Three men were killed early Sunday in two separate incidents in Hawthorne and Lynwood, including one victim who was allegedly run over by a car.

A dispute between two men at a party in the 11100 block of Linden Street in Lynwood led to the death of one, said Sgt. Pauline Panis of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The incident occurred about 4 a.m.

"At some point, the suspect entered his vehicle and ran over the victim," Panis said. "He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead."

Two suspects fled in a compact vehicle and remain at large, Panis said.

About two hours earlier in neighboring Hawthorne, authorities responded to a call about shots fired in the 13100 block of Yukon Avenue and found two men who had been hit.

One of the victims, an 18-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene about 2:20 a.m. A 24-year-old man was taken to a hospital, where he was also pronounced dead, authorities said.

Panis said that investigators believe the shooting was gang-related but that no one had been arrested or charged in connection with the crime.
