May 20, 2010 |  2:20 pm

A multiple shooting in Hollywood on Thursday wounded two people, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

[Updated at 3:30 p.m.: A previous post said the LAPD reported that four people had been shot. The department now says two people were wounded, the victim and the suspect.]

LAPD sources told The Times the shooting happened shortly after 1:30 p.m. in the 1200 block of Las Palmas Avenue. Authorities are checking reports that an officer might have been involved in the shooting but was not injured.

Details of the shooting were not immediately available. But police sources said officers were called to a residence on Las Palmas after a call of a woman screaming. A suspect was wounded in the shooting.

Police believe the incident involved some type of a domestic disturbance, but the exact circumstances are not clear.

It's unclear whether children in the home were involved.

The condition of the victims was not immediately known.
