A Los Angeles restaurant gun battle has left three people dead and 12 wounded early Saturday.
There were about 50 people inside the restaurant in the 2900 block of Rimpau Boulevard in the West Adams district in southwest Los Angeles when an argument broke out, according to a LA Times report citing Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Frank Preciado.
Three men left the restaurant and returned with firearms and began shooting at another group. Others at the restaurant also opened fire, and some diners were caught in the crossfire, Preciado told the LA Times. He described the scene as “a bloody scene with shell casings everywhere.”
The shooting continued in the driveway of the Jamaican restaurant, which is located in a converted house.
About 50 LAPD officers and a comparable amount of firefighters arrived onto the scene. The police took 2 people of interest- one man and one woman- into custody but remain looking for other suspects.
