HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — Six people were injured early Sunday when an argument erupted into gunfire at a banquet hall on Sunset Boulevard, authorities reported.

Four men and six women were shot at Vatican Banquet Hall, located at 5214 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The shooting at about 1:50 a.m., Los Angeles police Sgt. Tim Jenneman said.

“There was a dispute at a private event, and someone pulled out a handgun and started shooting,” Jenneman said. “Four males and two females received non-life-threatening wounds.”

One man was shot in the abdomen and a leg, another man’s leg was hurt and two others were shot in their feet, Jenneman said. A bullet grazed one woman’s head and another woman sustained a gunshot to the leg, he added.

Police have not made any immediate arrests. Investigators were working to recover video from the banquet hall to help identify the gunman.

    I can’t even get a job.That’s because that aS$hole lawyer Robert Hale from Hale and Nguyen in Brea couldn’t help me with my case. Now I’m a bitter aS$puck that has a beef with law enforcement and everybody on the internet. I used multiple screen names like [GROW..APAIR], [wg//af], [up//yours], [Mike in San Diego], [Mike in Upland], [1stman] and [kma] so no one can track me down. I challenge people to meet me in front of the Fullerton P.D. station for my protection.
