Three people killed in Los Angeles shootout
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.” –
