Police are investigating an early morning shooting in Northridge that left two men and two women dead.
The shooting happened around 4:30 a.m. Sunday outside a home in the 17400 block of Devonshire Street.
Law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times that the killings appeared to stem from a dispute over personal property, although they wouldn’t say what kind of property.
The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing, said detectives were surprised that the dispute would have led to multiple deaths.
One of the suspects was believed to have lived at the Northridge home, which authorities said had been converted into an illegal boardinghouse. It’s unclear whether any of the victims lived there.
