HUNTINGTON BEACH (CBSLA) – A real estate professional was killed and three other adults were wounded Saturday morning in a shooting at a Huntington Beach home.

A family dispute over the sale of a home turned deadly after a shooting was reported at 10:51 a.m. in the 4500 block of Operetta Street, Huntington Beach Police Capt. Tim Martin said.

“This appears to be about an ongoing family dispute over property,” said Chief Julian Harvey of the Huntington Beach Police Department. “What we believe happened is that some real estate professionals came to take a look at the residence, at which point the shooting occurred.”
Officers said three real estate professionals were at the property at the time. One of them was killed. One of the injured victims is the suspect, police said. It is unclear how the other two victims are involved.
“We were obviously concerned bc we have a three-month-old son and it’s so close to home,” said Kendra Gomez, a neighbor. “It is very scary because I hope to walk my son in a stroller one day and not be scared about what’s going on, so it’s alarming.”

The four victims were found outside the house, Martin said. All were taken by paramedics to hospitals, where one man died.

The three people injured are expected to survive, investigators said.

The original call received by police was of a “shooting in progress,” Martin said. The Huntington Beach SWAT team was dispatched to the scene.
