Beverly Crest shooting; 3 victims were inside a car when they were shot


At least three people were killed and four others wounded in a shooting overnight in California, according to the Associated Press.

Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Frank Preciado told the Associated Press that the incident took place just after 2:30 a.m. outside a home in Beverly Crest, an upscale LA neighborhood near Beverly Hills. The three killed, he said, were in a vehicle, while the four who were injured were standing outside.

That’s what the LAPD says on Twitter that they received several 911 calls that called them to the scene, where they found five victims. Three were pronounced dead on arrival, while two were injured.

Two other victims had driven themselves to a medical center, according to CBS Los Angeles, and when they arrived, paramedics transported them to a trauma hospital. The two injured people who remained at the scene were taken to UCLA Medical Center by paramedics.

According to the LAPD, two of the injured people are in a critical condition and two are in a stable condition. There is currently no information about the dead or injured victims, the police said.

Police said the home the victims were standing outside was a “short-term rental.” Additional residents of the house are being questioned, as are neighbors and other witnesses. No information about a suspect or motive is being made available at this time.

LAPD Sgt. Bruce Borihan told CBS Los Angeles that the department believes there is no danger to the public at the present time.

This is the sixth mass shooting in California so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive. Beverly Crest is about 20 miles from Monterey Parkwhere 11 people were killed on 21 January. Rep. Adam Schiff, who represents California’s 30th congressional district, which is located near Beverly Crest, took up the string of violence on Twitter.

“Terrible news of the 4th mass shooting in California in a week. We can’t live like this. We literally can’t,” he wrote. “I will never accept such senseless, horrific violence in our society. We must act. Thinking and praying for the victims and their families.”
