At least three men were fatally shot and one other was wounded late Friday in a Willowbrook backyard, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Detectives were investigating whether the shooting, which was reported about 8:45 p.m. in the 2100 block of Bliss Street, was gang-related, authorities said.

The surviving victim was taken to a hospital and undergoing surgery, said sheriff's Lt. Victor Clay. The man's condition was unknown.

None of the men's identities was released Friday night.
