ECHO PARK (AP) — Los Angeles police say one person has been killed and three others wounded, two critically, in a suspected Christmas gang shooting near Dodger Stadium.

Police say reports of shots being fired sent officers to an area of Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park at about 11:45 a.m. Saturday.

One person was found dead at the scene.

The dead man was later identified as 18-year-old Cesar Guerrero Jr.

No arrests have been made and other details of the attack haven’t been released.

However, authorities say there’s a strong possibility that the shootings are gang-related.
