Four suspects crashed a backyard graduation party in Artesia on Saturday night and opened fire, killing one man and wounding two others, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 10 p.m. in the 18000 block of Alburtis Avenue, where authorities responding to the scene found three men suffering from gunshot wounds, said Deputy Lisa Jansen of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene, and two other men were transferred to a local hospital, where they were listed in fair condition, Jansen said.

Detectives still are investigating whether anyone at the party knew the men who opened fire, said sheriff’s Deputy Katrina Flores. They opened fire after a confrontation or argument with the people at party, Flores said.
