3 Arrested, 2 Sought In Hollywood Party Killing

View Comments

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police have arrested three people for a gang-related shooting at a Hollywood party that killed a man and wounded another.

Police announced Wednesday that two men and a woman, all from Compton, have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the April 17 death of Lorenzo Smith. Two other men are being sought.

A police statement says gang members argued with Smith and several drew guns and fired, killing the 22-year-old. Another man was seriously wounded in the 3 a.m. attack.

The arrests were made after authorities served nearly a dozen search warrants last week in Compton and Long Beach.
