Shooting Erupts At Bell Gardens Party, 2 Killed

BELL GARDENS (CBS) — Authorities are investigating a shooting that killed two men and wounded a woman at a backyard party in Bell Gardens.

One man died at the scene and the other was pronounced dead at a hospital. A 28-year-old woman was treated for a gunshot wound to one of her limbs and is now in stable condition, sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said.

At least 20 people were at a party in the 6900 block of Adamson Avenue, when a fight broke out about 2 a.m.

“Several shots were then fired from what appears to have been multiple weapons,” said sheriff’s homicide Lt. Pat Nelson. “Two of the victims lost their lives at that party, and more were injured.”

Another man was found badly beaten and was in “life-threatening condition,” Parker said.

Two men were detained in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information on the shooting can contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
