ARLETA (CBSLA) — One teen was killed and two injured Friday night at a shooting that occurred at a house party in Arleta.
Police are looking for two, possibly three suspects who fled the scene in a dark colored SUV.
The coroner’s office identified the deceased 17-year-old as Christian Javier Camacho of Sun Valley, who died at the scene. Another 17-year-old and 19-year-old were also injured.
Police told CBSLA’s Joy Benedict that the shooter attended the party, got into an altercation with the teen, pulled out a gun and shot and killed him. The murdered teen did not live at the house but was attending the party. The other victims were struck in the process. The shooter then ran to the SUV with another man and a woman.
One of those victims was taken out the house by two friends and handed over to paramedics who rushed the victim to hospital. That victim is expected to be okay, as is the other shooting victim, who made it to the hospital on their own.
Both were treated for non-life threatening wounds and released, police said.
Officers were called to the scene at 13418 Rangoon Street shortly before 11 p.m. and found Camacho lying on the ground in a rear driveway suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
