Police are investigating two shootings, one of which was fatal, that took place early Sunday morning at a party at the site of a former Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery.

The Los Angeles Times reports that two men were shot at about 1:30 a.m. at the 600 block of Moulton Avenue in Lincoln Heights, at what is now the Brewery Artist Lofts, an artist-in-residence community.

Sergeant Michael Morisseau of the LAPD's Hollenbeck Division told the Times that investigators were still trying to determine whether it was gang-related. 

A 22-year-old man was pronounced dead at a local hospital, and another man was taken to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, where he is in stable condition according to Morriseau, who added that no other details were available.

According to the L.A. Times' Mapping L.A. project, previous to this incident, there had been no homicides in Lincoln Heights during the past six months. The past three months in the area had seen an average of about 2.5 violent crimes per week.
