Three Dead and Four Wounded in Shooting Near Beverly Hills

Police say at least three people were killed and four others injured in a shooting near Beverly Hills, California, early Saturday morning.

The Los Angeles Police Department said the shooting happened at a short-term rental at about 2:30 a.m. in the upscale Beverly Crest neighborhood, which borders Beverly Hills.

Police responded to multiple calls about “a shooting that killed everyone,” Sgt. Bruce Borihanh says at a press conference on Saturday.

He said police were investigating whether there was a party or other gathering at the residence when the shooting occurred.

Sergeant Borihanh said two of the injured were in critical condition and the other two were in stable condition. He said officials were waiting for coroners to identify those killed. Police did not provide the gender or age of those killed or injured.

The sergeant said there was “no suspicious information” but he did not believe the community was in danger based on eyewitness interviews to date.

Margaret Stewart, a spokeswoman for the department, said the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a shooting on the 2700 block of Ellison Drive at 2:55 a.m.

About 15 minutes later, she said, authorities received a call from another hospital where two people injured in the shooting had treated themselves. Ms. Stewart said the hospital was not equipped to treat their injuries and the Fire Department transferred them to another hospital.

This month in the United States, there have been at least 43 mass shootings that have injured or killed four or more people. According to the Gun Violence Archivea nonprofit research group that tracks gun violence based on police reports, news reports, and other publicly available sources.
