other shots were fired indiscriminately in the

Around 10:07 a.m.
Los Angeles police are searching for at least
two suspects in a shooting that left three
people dead and 12 wounded at a
restaurant operating out of a converted
home.

Officer Jenny Houser said Sunday that
detectives are still trying to determine a
motive for the gunfire that erupted during a
birthday celebration attended by more than
100 people.

A preliminary investigation determined an
argument preceded the shooting early
Saturday.

Police questioned two possible suspects
shortly after the incident, but officials said
later no one was in custody. Investigators
have not released suspect descriptions.

Three people died at the scene. Houser says
two victims were in critical condition late
Saturday. Two of the wounded were
released and the others had wounds that
were not considered life-threatening.
