Police are searching for four people involved in a shooting that left two men dead outside a home in Van Nuys late Tuesday night.

The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. at a home in the 15300 block of Wyandotte Street.

Investigators believe the two men were standing in front of the home when four people approached on foot and fired multiple shots, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Thompson said.

Officers arrived to find one of the victims lying on top of the other victim on the front porch of the home, a news release from the Police Department stated.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

Officials have not identified the victims.

Witnesses reported hearing an argument outside the house before the gunshots were fired.

They also saw three to four males running to a sedan parked on the street, according to the news release.

The driver fled the scene eastbound on Wyandotte Street.

The attackers may have been wearing hoods and masks during the attack.

A perimeter was set up around the neighborhood to search for the assailants, at least one of whom is believed to still be armed.

Nearby residents were not evacuated but were asked to shelter in place as police conducted their search.

No motive for the shooting has been determined.
