LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police interviewed neighbors Tuesday as they investigated the shooting deaths of three men in a house in a gated community.
Firefighters respond to a 911 call found the gunshot victims at about 4 p.m. Monday and called the police to the residence in the affluent Porter Ranch in the area.
There was no one in custody in connection with the murders, Officer Drake Madison said. He refused to comment on the question of whether the police are looking for suspects.
All the victims were men in their 30 or 40 who died on the spot, Madison said. They were not immediately identified and it was not clear whether they were inhabitants of the large, two-story house in the Renaissance housing development in the northwest of the San Fernando Valley.
The 911 call came from someone “in connection” with the people in the house, police said.
Congressman Brad Sherman, who lives in Porter Ranch, told KTTV he feels safe, but said that the murders in a small community, “shakes you a little.”
Guests and residents have to drive past a guarded gate, to the development, where the homes list for more than $1 million.
