A 17-year-old Sun Valley boy was shot dead and two other people were wounded in a shooting at a house party in Arleta, and police Saturday are looking for the shooter and two possible accomplices.
The victim got into a fight with the suspect at the party in the 13400 block of Rangoon Street, near Canterbury Avenue, at 10:45 p.m. Friday, according to police.
During the altercation, the suspect pulled out a handgun, shot the victim several times and ran to a dark-colored vehicle with another male and female. A detailed description of the shooter was not available.
The wounds to the other victims were not considered life-threatening, according to Officer Rosario Cervantes of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section. Both were treated and released from an area hospital, police said.
