All were described as men believed to be in their mid-20s. Three were found at the scene and taken to a hospital. The fourth victim was found nearby, according to the LAPD.

Their conditions were not immediately known late Wednesday. Detectives were at the scene gathering evidence.


In a separate incident, a car-to-car shooting left a woman and a man wounded at South Vermont Avenue and West Manchester Boulevard.

Police said two cars traveling south on South Vermont Avenue pulled up next to each other shortly before 5 p.m. and that a person inside one of the vehicles fired at two people.

The wounded man was in his mid-30s and the woman appeared to be 17 or 18 years old, police said.

No arrests had been reported in either of the shootings.
