Two people were hospitalized and a possible suspect was found dead after a shooting at a tattoo shop in Reseda overnight.
The incident occurred around midnight in the 18500 block of Sherman Way when three to four men approached the shop and demanded cash and other items, including two large necklaces, the Los Angeles Police Department said Friday.
An altercation then occurred and at some point spilled outside, where several gunshots were fired.
Video showed about a dozen bullet casings on the ground behind the yellow tape marking the crime scene.
The casings were shot by multiple handguns, an LAPD news release said.
The tattoo shop owner and a customer were both struck by gunfire and taken to a hospital in stable condition, police said.
They were treated and released, police said.
Four suspects then fled the scene heading east on Sherman Way in a gray four-door sedan, though police initially said the men fled in two separate vehicles.
Investigators believe a body dumped a few blocks away in the 18300 block of Saticoy Street could have been one of the robbery suspects.
The deceased was described only as a Black man in his 30s. He was “the victim of a gunshot wound to his upper torso,” the release said.
Two or three suspects remain outstanding, police said.
Their vehicles were described as an older model silver or gray Nissan Altima and a white Ford van.
