At least seven people are injured after shooting at Los Angeles park


The Los Angeles Fire Department said that at least seven people were injured following gunfire at a Los Angeles park on Sunday.  The fire department said in a statement that paramedics took four men and three women to area hospitals after the shooting at or near a car show at Peck Park in the San Pedro district in southwestern Los Angeles.

At least three of the patients were wounded by gunfire, including one man and a woman who were in critical condition, the statement read, saying “There are no other patients remaining at scene” and adding that the circumstances regarding the shooting have yet to be confirmed.

Los Angeles police had no suspect in custody, nor a suspect description, and they offered no details of the shooting.  However, they were not classifying the incident as an active shooter, indicating officers did not see continued danger of a random mass shooting.

Peck Park is a community center in San Pedro; according to the city’s parks and recreation website, the park has ‘a baseball diamond, skateboard park, gymnasium and walking trails.’
