LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities have released the names of four family members killed in a Los Angeles backyard in what investigators believe was a gang-related shooting.

County coroner’s officials say brothers Luis Jimenez , Angel Jimenez , and Anthony Jimenez, and their cousin Martin Haro died in the Friday night shooting in the Willowbrook area. All four men were in their mid-20s.

Investigators say family members reported that they heard gunfire and found the victims shot on a backyard patio.

Two of the men were pronounced dead at the scene and the two others died later at a hospital.

Sheriff’s officials said Sunday they are trying to locate two unidentified men who were seen driving away from the area in a black sport utility vehicle.

Authorities have not identified any suspects but say the shooting is likely gang related.
