Police are searching for whoever opened fire on a group of people, wounding two men, at a Long Beach home Monday night.

The shooting was reported about 8 p.m. in the 2900 block of East 15th Street, Long Beach Police Department Lt. Rico Fernandez said.

Investigators believe the shots came from an alley behind the home, striking two victims in the upper body.

Both men were taken from the scene by ambulance with injuries that were not believed to be life threatening, Fernandez said.

The shooting occurred as a group of between 15 and 20 men were gathered in the back area of the home for a party, police said.

Investigators are not sure if the victims knew whoever opened fire, or if the shooting was gang related.

The unidentified gunman fled the scene after the shooting.

No description of the suspect was available.
