One man killed, 3 others wounded in Huntington Beach shooting, police say


One man was killed and three other people were wounded after gunfire broke out Saturday morning at a home in Huntington Beach, police said.

Officers responded to the home in the 5400 block of Operetta Drive around 10:50 a.m. after multiple neighbors reported a shooting in progress, said Capt. Tim Martin of the Huntington Beach Police Department.

A SWAT team surrounded the home Saturday and police were urging people to stay away from the area.


Police found the victims at the home. “The officers were able to rescue those people out of the house and yard,” Martin said.

The four victims were taken to a hospital. A man was pronounced dead at the hospital and the others were being treated Saturday afternoon, Martin said.

Police said that the shootings stemmed from a domestic dispute involving the sale of the property.

The SWAT team remained on the scene Saturday evening.

“It’s still very active,” Martin said of the situation.
