1 Killed, 6 Wounded In Shooting At Lancaster Party

LANCASTER (AP) —  Seven people were shot at a late-night party in Lancaster, including a 14-year-old girl who later died, and homicide detectives are looking for suspects.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Lillian Peck says gunfire erupted at the house party just before 1 a.m. Sunday.

Seven victims were taken to a local hospital, where the teen girl was pronounced dead. She lived in the Lancaster area.

Peck says the victims include three females and four males, whose ages range between 13 and 26 years of age.

Their identities are being withheld pending notification of relatives and because of their ages.

Peck says investigators have no motive. They’re searching for a suspect or suspects.

  1. Maybe parties need to be done my midnight. Nothing good ever seems to happen at parties “just before 1am.”

    I live a few blocks from where this happened. This is starting to be a common theme here, early Saturday morning there was a party across from mine, about 80 – 90 filed out a little before 1am. This is about the 8th or 9th party in a 2 month span. One fight was started because someone pulled someone’s hair. The cops won’t respond unless there is a fight, never mind about disturbing the peace. But these parties are becoming commonplace here in east Lancaster…:(

    If you let your 14-year old daughter attend a party at 1:00 AM you are negligent in your parental duties. Shame on the parents!

    Is anything in Lancaster Palmdale NOT gang related? Getting to be the armpit of LA county! I know folks that are trying to leave that hell hole as soon as they can dump their worthless homes or just walk away from them. They are scared to continue to live there-

    lancaster started out being the place every one wanted to move to .. and now its just a slum whole for all the trashy, ghetto people who have worn out there welcome in la. to rebuild there worthlessness..

    Stop the parties. Clean up the area. Get rid of gangs. More police enforcement. Tired of low life taking over California.

    I think that it is terrible how something could happen of the such happening. Ironically, I am defining a theory with the exact same numbers (1, 14, 13, 26) being prime of subject. It is a Humanity Alphabet that naturally spells Man, Woman, Domain, DNA, and Nano in the center, with other phenomena formulas.
    Sorry to hear about the inccident.
