CARSON (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say a woman is dead and a man was wounded when gunfire rang out during a party in Carson.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives said in a written statement that the incident unfolded about 10:35 p.m. Saturday in the 19700 block of South Enslow Drive in Carson.
