Detectives from the Pico Rivera Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Friday are seeking the public’s help in locating suspects in a shooting in Whittier that left three teenagers in critical condition.
Deputies were dispatched at 10:56 p.m. on Oct. 15 to the 10000 block of Obregon Street in response to a report of a fist fight, which was then upgraded to a possible gunshot victim call, according to Pico Rivera Station watch commander.
Paramedics were dispatched to the location at 11:03 p.m. in response to a report of gunshots, and three people were taken to a trauma center, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher.
“There was a Halloween party and, at one point, several individuals were involved in a fight, which went onto the street,” the watch commander said. “At one point, a male armed himself with a handgun and shot three victims. There was also a vigil nearby.”
The teens were listed in critical, but stable condition at the trauma center, he said.
Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or submitted online at lacrimestoppers.org.
