BOYLE HEIGHTS (AP) — Authorities say eight people were shot – one fatally – and another three stabbed after a fight broke out at a birthday party in the East Los Angeles area.

Police said Saturday that 22-year-old Steven Lopez died at the scene and two other gunshot victims were taken to County-USC Medical Center with critical injuries.

Police spokesman Cleon Joseph says a dispute at the house party in Boyle Heights escalated until several people pulled out guns and knives early Saturday.

The condition of the other shooting victims was described only as stable and there was no word on the condition of the stabbing victims.

No arrests have been made.

Joseph says the incident does not appear to be gang related.
