The gunfire began just before midnight near the intersection of Palm and Highland avenues, according to police.
The shooting then continued across the street, a witness told ABC7. The witness, who asked not to be identified by name, said she was at a nearby gas station when she saw teenagers who appeared to be gathered for a graduation party. She said at one point a vehicle pulled into the gas station and a person inside the vehicle opened fire, shooting two girls.
One person was pronounced dead at the scene. Family members later said their 21-year-old grandson was killed. The deceased victim’s name was not immediately confirmed.
Several of the wounded transported themselves to hospitals, where they were treated for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, authorities said.
