Sky5 was over the scene of a deadly shooting in the Harbor Gateway area on Friday morning.

It happened around 5:30 a.m. at an apartment building in the 1600 block of West 205th Street.

When officers arrived, they found one man who had been shot to death on a stairwell, said LAPD Sgt. Rudy Lopez.

They entered an apartment and found two additional male victims deceased.

All three victims were African-American men between 20 and 30 years old, Lopez said.

A fourth man who was shot in the leg was located by officers a short distance away at Western Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard.

He was treated by paramedics and transported to a local hospital.

“He’s being detained now for his involvement in this incident,” Lopez said.

Based on witness accounts, police said it appeared all the people involved were acquaintances.

“There was a disturbance inside the location when the shooting occurred,” Lopez said. “It does not appear that this was race-related or gang-related.”

He did not have any additional details about the nature of the dispute.

The investigation was ongoing. Police were not actively searching for anybody else in the area.
