Police rescued two young children following a shooting in the Westlake neighborhood of Los Angeles that left two people dead and the suspect injured Tuesday night.
The incident began with a dispute inside the Paseo at Californian apartments on West 6th Street near South Bonnie Brae Street and ended with a shooting in the parking garage around 11 p.m., a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson said.
One of the shooting victims was pronounced dead at the scene. A second victim, who was found in an alley, died at a hospital. Both were described as men in their 20s.
Police say the suspected shooter sustained minor, unspecified injuries and was taken into custody.
Officers located the suspect’s two young children inside a white Chevrolet Cruze that was left at the scene, police said. The kids appeared to be unharmed but were crying as officers carried them to safety.
Police believe the suspect and victims knew each other prior to the shooting.
Investigators searched the area for surveillance video and witnesses that may help with the investigation.
