Police were searching Monday for two men involved in a possible gang-related shooting in which one man died and two other people were injured.

The incident occurred at 4 a.m. Sunday in the 2700 block of San Marino Street in Westlake when the suspects walked up to two men and a woman on the porch of an apartment complex and opened fire, police said.

All three victims were taken to a hospital, where one of the men died shortly after, officials said. Police were not releasing the names of the victims until their families were notified.

No further information on the suspects was available, police said.
