At least 3 dead in shooting in Benedict Canyon area in L.A.


At least three people were killed and four wounded Saturday morning in a shooting in an upscale neighborhood in the Benedict Canyon area of Los Angeles, according to LAPD Capt. Jonathan Tippet.

Three people were killed inside a vehicle on the street and four were wounded outside, according to a law enforcement source. The suspect or suspects remain at large.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials responded to the shooting at 2:55 a..m. in the 2700 block of Ellison Drive, a street of large hillside homes north of Beverly Hills. Los Angeles police were also on the scene.

Few details were immediately available, but police said the wounded were taken to local hospitals and were in critical condition.

The entire block was cordoned off with crime scene tape early Saturday and multiple LAPD vehicles were on scene.

The shooting comes just a week after 11 people were fatally injured in a mass shooting in Monterey Park. Three days days after that, a gunman killed seven people at two farms around Half Moon Bay.
