Three men believed to be in their 20s were kiled and at least nine others were injured and taken to hospitals. Investigators didn’t immediately have any suspect description. Some people were in Halloween costume. Firefighters arrived at the home around 10:44 p.m. on Tuesday to a scene “filled with chaos.” Paramedics declared a mass casualty incident. Some residents say they heard up to 20 shots. Neighbors told reporters they saw a car swerving and accelerating. Possibly the shots were fired from the car but victims were found inside and outside the house.
A Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman said at least one suspect fled the scene, but it was not known if the shooter was on foot or in a car. Also the exact number of suspects involved was not clear. Multiple shell casings were seen in the alley behind the home. No arrests were made. Seventh St. from Molino to Temple avenues remained closed while authorities worked to conduct their investigation.
