The shooting was reported at 3:11 p.m. in the 800 block of Bay View Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

A 16-year-old girl died at the scene. A man, later identified as 24-year-old Alex Gutierrez, was rushed to a hospital with multiple gunshot wounds where he also died, police said.

Two women were also wounded. One woman, said to be in her 20s, was struck in the leg. A 70-year-old woman suffered a graze wound. Both are expected to be OK.

Police believe this may have been a gang-related shooting. It is unclear how many suspects were involved. No suspect descriptions were released and no arrests have been made.

Because the shooting happened in broad daylight, the LAPD was asking for the public’s help in acquiring information.

Police said there was no immediate threat to the public as they continued their search for the shooter.
