2 dead, 5 injured in shooting at Southern California park: police


Two people are dead and five others are injured after a shooting at Peck Park on Sunday in San Pedro, Calif., Los Angeles police said.

The shooting may have started as an argument between two groups and there were likely multiple shooters, according to the LAPD.

No suspect is in custody at this time.

The incident was reported at or near the auto show that was taking place in the park, according to ABC Los Angeles station KABC. Witnesses told the station that there were hundreds of people gathered in the park at the time.

Police said some weapons were recovered from the scene and authorities are investigating whether or not it was a gang-related incident.

The condition of the injured was not immediately known.

Earlier Sunday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said three male and three female victims were taken to area hospitals by LAFD paramedics. Their ages were unknown.

San Pedro is a neighborhood of Los Angeles.
