Triple Murder In Harbor Gateway
Three men were killed and another was wounded in an early morning shooting in Harbor Gateway.
Officers responding to an "unknown disturbance" at an apartment building in the 1600 block of West 205th Street immediately discovered two dead men in or near the building, including one in a stairwell, LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph told us.
The victims appeared to be in their 20s, he said.
Cops then found a third victim, also dead, inside an apartment, Joseph said. A fourth man was found in the neighborhood. He was hospitalized in unknown condition and was not cooperating with investigators, Joseph said.
