Two people were critically injured in a shooting that occurred near the Ballona Wetlands early Wednesday morning.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) the incident, which was reported around 5:43 a.m. in the area around Jefferson and Lincoln boulevards, resulted in four people being shot.
Two of the victims were in critical condition at a local hospital as of noon Wednesday, while the other two victims were in stable condition.
LAPD detectives questioned a woman at the scene of the crime, but she was not taken into custody, and it is unknown if she was a suspect or witness.
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, police are seeking a female suspect and a second suspect who may have fled the scene in a black car.
It is unclear if the shooting was related to a nearby homeless encampment that earlier this year was the likely source of a fire that burned five acres of the wetlands.
