Three people were in unknown condition after being shot late Monday evening in the Vermont-Slauson neighborhood of South Los Angeles, authorities said.

The Los Angeles Police Department received a call of a shooting victim near 66th Street and Budlong Avenue about 8:55 p.m., Det. Gus Villanueva said.

One of the responding sergeants on the scene notified the department about two additional shooting victims nearby. A male suspect was seen heading east on 66th.

No information was given about the victims, and it was not known if the shootings were related.

“It’s a fluid situation and everything is very preliminary,” Villanueva said.
