“Officers made entry, an area of the house was already in flames . . . they extricated three victims with the help of a firefighter,” Andy Nieman of the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Paramedics treated two 38-year-old women and a 34-year-old man who were taken to a hospital in unknown condition, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence said.

It is unclear how the fire began or what prompted the shooting.

Police have identified the male shooter, but are not releasing his name, Nieman said. Authorities believe the suspect is an acquaintance of the victims and has an address in the area.

Firefighters and police are being kept on heightened alert, officials said.

Officials say the gunman is dead. Initial reports said the gunman was on the loose.

Fire officials opted to let the blaze burn itself out. The fire was finally extinguished around 2:15 p.m.

    It isn’t as if the world is ending. don’t be stupid.

    • lorena

      I am not saying the world is ending you are the stupid

      • Keith

        Yeah you clearly did say that…at the very least eluded to it. You said that as the worlds end draws nearer violence will increase..then in the same breath said you hope it(violence) decreases which couldnt possibly happen if, as you said, the world will be ending this year. So which is it..is the world ending and we have no hope or will the world go on and we can hope for less violence? You’re talking out of both sides of your mouth. Good underlying message but you should’ve left the world ending part out..as soon as you say that..anything you say after will be irrelevant..you lose all credibility.

        keith if you notice I did not say the end of the world second I said as if the year ends it get more violence ……. as it gets closer to the end of year … every year it gets worst … your writing don’t make cense … sorry if you can’t understand what I am trying to say …. maybe I didn’t make it explainable to you sorry and I don’t care much of what you think just no name calling pleased …. everything I write comes from my heart and what I think and this is called freedom of speech … take care not saying anything bad to you either everyone has or have their own opinion and I don’t judge other for what they think or what their preference or race are

        I didnt call you any names. The only name calling was between you and Teucer. Okay, lets say you weren’t referring to the world end. It makes even less sense to refer to the end of the year coming..The year JUST started!! It’s February. So an increase in violence could not possibly be attributed to the end of the year. I never once said you can’t say anything you like…in fact you can..as we both know. However, if what you say doesn’t make sense well then you can expect someone to say something. If you don’t want anyone to say anything I suggest not commenting on LA times articeles because you’re going to get criticisms. You should write in a diary..or on your bedroom wall then you will get no feedback at all. Problem solved.
