An argument at a bar in La Mirada Saturday morning spilled out into a parking lot where a man was fatally shot, and a security guard and a woman also hit.
The dead man was later identified as Adrian Quesada, 30, of Ontario, said Lt. Dave Smith of the coroner’s office.
The triple shooting was reported at 12:54 a.m. in the 13900 block of Imperial Highway, said Deputy Trina Schrader of the LA Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
A 41-year-old man working as a security officer at the bar was involved in an argument with several patrons and the dispute continued into the parking lot where “it appears several people started shooting at each other,’ said Deputy Charles Moore.
Quesada drove away from the scene, and his vehicle struck a center median in the 13600 block of Imperial Highway, disabling it. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Moore said, and a gun was recovered inside his vehicle.
The security guard was taken to an area hospital, where he is expected to survive his gunshot wounds. Also, a woman, who was suffering from several gunshot wounds, was taken to an area hospital and was expected to survive her injuries, he said.
“Detectives are in the process of trying to determine what the dispute was about and who was responsible for the shooting,’ Moore said.
Sheriff’s homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the shooting to call them at (323) 890-5500.
