Streets were closed in a section of Hollywood Monday morning as police investigated a shooting at a gathering that left one man dead and sent three men to hospitals with gunshot wounds.

The shootings were reported at 10:16 p.m. Sunday at 6112 W. Afton Place, said the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Brian Humphrey.

The victims were all men in their 30s and 50s, according to a desk officer at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center.

The shootings happened at a gathering, he said.

A detective at the scene told Fox11 that officers on patrol heard gunshots and found 30 to 40 people in the street when they arrived. He said two males approached the home on foot and fired into the residence and that one of the victims may have fired back.

As of 3:45 a.m., two of the gunshot victims were still in critical condition and one was treated at a hospital and released, the officer said.

No suspects were in custody, the desk officer said.

Humphrey earlier indicated that two others were also taken to hospitals with undetermined injuries.

One patient “in undetermined condition has an unspecified non-life- threatening injury,” Humphrey said. Another patient was in undetermined condition with an unspecified medical complaint.

At 12:40 a.m. a tweet from the LAPD Hollywood Division noted that streets would remain closed in the area of Afton Place near Gower Street while the shooting investigation was underway.
