Two people were killed and 7 wounded after gunfire erupted Sunday afternoon in San Pedro’s Peck Park, authorities said.
Police said there were approximately 500 people at the park, when they received reports of a shooting. A softball game was underway and a car show had drawn crowds, but it was not immediately clear if either event was connected to the shooting. Initial reports indicated that the shooting took place at the park’s baseball diamond, according to officials.
Seven people suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to hospitals, including a man and a woman who died, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson Brian Humphrey.
