The scene of a multiple victim shooting in Southwestern L.A. Wednesday night.

A shooting in Southwestern Los Angeles Wednesday night left at least three victims. One victim, who rescue workers tried to recussitate as they loaded the stretcher onto the ambulance, was later pronounced dead.

According to police at the scene, on the 4800 block of 2nd Avenue, a group of Rollin 40s Crips were having a party and shooting fireworks off in the street when a white van rolled by and someone inside the van opened fire. 

Partygoers waited to be questioned, some wearing costumes, like one man, who had on an orange clown wig.

As of yet, there has been no word of arrests.
