August 26, 2012 | 10:07 am

Three people were shot, one fatally, in Westlake early Sunday in what police are investigating as a gang-related attack.

The trio were standing in the 2700 block of San Marino Street when two people got out of a car and "fired some rounds" about 4 a.m., said Los Angeles police Officer Cleon Joseph. The three victims were transported to an area hospital, where one was pronounced dead.

The deceased victim's name has not been released by authorities.

The suspects remain at large, Joseph said.
