Three Killed, Four Injured in Beverly Crest Shooting
On Saturday morning, three people were killed and four critically injured in a shooting in the affluent neighborhood of Beverly Crest in Los Angeles, California. According to Sgt. Bruce Borihanh of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the shooting took place at a short-term rental home and some type of gathering may have taken place at the time.
According to the Gun Violence Archive, this is the sixth mass shooting to occur in California this month, resulting in the injury or death of at least four people. Of the seven people who were shot, four were standing outside, and the three who were killed were in a vehicle. Paramedics took two of the victims to the hospital, while the other two drove themselves. Two individuals have been reported to be in stable condition, while two others are in critical condition.
This follows a mass shooting in Monterey Park earlier this month, in which 11 people were fatally injured, and a shooting in Half Moon Bay days later, in which seven people were killed.
Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation by interviewing neighbors and searching for home surveillance video. Residents of the area are questioning if mass shootings can be prevented, as authorities attempt to piece together the details of this tragic incident.
