Three Killed, Four Injured in Beverly Crest Shooting
On Saturday morning, at least three people were killed and four others were wounded in a shooting in the Beverly Crest neighborhood of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene at 2:55 a.m. on the 2700 block of Ellison Drive off of Oak Pass Road. It was reported that multiple 911 calls reported the shooting, and when officers arrived at the scene, they found multiple people suffering from gunshot wounds. At the scene, three of those shot were declared dead.
Two of the gunshot wound survivors drove themselves to a medical center, and then were taken to a trauma care hospital. The other two survivors were taken directly to a trauma care hospital by paramedics at the scene. Police report that out of the four gunshot wound victims, two are in critical condition and the other two are stable. The information regarding the ages and genders of the deceased has not yet been made public. The coroner will make known that information when the appropriate time comes. Homicide detectives are still investigating by interviewing neighbors and looking for home surveillance video.
Confirmation from Sgt. Frank Preciado of the Los Angeles Police Department revealed that out of the seven people who were shot, four were located outside. A vehicle contained three people who were killed. He also said he did not have information on what led up to the shooting, or if it occurred at a residence.
This shooting in Beverly Crest comes exactly a week after 11 people were killed during a mass shooting at a dance studio in Monterey Park and three days after a gunman killed seven people at two farms around Half Moon Bay. The details of the shooting are still unknown, but there have been reports of fatal shootings occurring during house parties at properties in that area in the past. Confirmation has been made by the Los Angeles Police Department that the site of the shootings was a “short term rental.”
