WILMINGTON (CBSLA.com) — Four people reportedly were shot early Saturday at a family party in South LA.
LAPD Sgt. Ed Piago says gunfire was reported at 2:45 a.m. in the 1200 block of West Papeete Street, located in Wilmington.
Around 40 people were celebrating an 18-year-old’s birthday in the backyard.
Several people were standing in front of the home when someone drove by and opened fire, Piago said.
Three men and a woman were injured. One person was transported to a hospital with critical injuries and three others were treated for non-life threatening wounds.
