Three dead, four wounded in Beverly Crest shooting, U.S.A

At least three people were killed and four wounded Saturday morning in a shooting in an upscale neighborhood in the Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles.

Authorities said, three people were killed inside a vehicle on the street and four were wounded outside, a law enforcement source told The Times.

All three killed were women, who were in their mid-20s to early 30s, another law enforcement source said. The suspect or suspects remain at large.

Sgt. Bruce Borihanh from the Los Angeles Police Department said the property was a “short-term rental home” and that a gathering was going on at the time.

“We called it a gathering, until we can interview some of the people that were here to determine exactly what kind of gathering it was,” he told reporters at the scene.

He said the attack was not random. Neighbors reported seeing several cars driving away from the scene within minutes of the gunfire. Authorities towed a black Mazda SUV Saturday afternoon that had bullet holes on both sides of the car and in the passenger-side window.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials responded to the shooting at 2:55 a.m. in the 2700 block of Ellison Drive, a street of large hillside homes north of Beverly Hills. Los Angeles police were also on the scene.
