The Myanmar Times - - World -

THREE peo­ple were killed and at least a dozen more in­jured when shoot­ing broke out after an ar­gu­ment at a pop-up restau­rant in Los An­ge­les, po­lice said.

One per­son has been ar­rested and po­lice have launched a man­hunt for an­other in con­nec­tion with the deadly in­ci­dent in West Adams, in the south­west­ern part of the metro area, said spokesper­son Lieu­tenant Chuck Springer.

The in­ci­dent on Oc­to­ber 15 hap­pened in­side a home that was tem­po­rar­ily turned into a restau­rant.

It was a pop­u­lar Ja­maican eatery that of­ten held par­ties on Fri­day nights.

“It’s a bloody scene with shell cas­ings ev­ery­where,” LAPD spokesper­son Sergeant Frank Pre­ci­ado said, adding that there were about 50 peo­ple in the restau­rant at the time of the shoot­ing.

“This is the lat­est ex­am­ple of a sense­less gun vi­o­lence epi­demic that causes so much pain and sor­row in our city and across the na­tion,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said.

“Los An­ge­les grieves for the sense­less loss of lives in one of our most cher­ished neigh­bor­hoods. My prayers go out for the vic­tims and their fam­i­lies.” –
