Monday night officers were called to a mansion in the Hollywood Hills, above Beverly Hills after reports of disturbing the peace. By Tuesday morning, there was a shooting at the gathering, leaving two people wounded and one dead. The shooting is now being investigated as a homicide.
KNX is reporting that the house was rented for someone for $10,000 for an unidentified NFL player, with some 200 people in attendance.
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, three people were shot during the massive party in the 13200 block of Mulholland Drive at around 1:00 a.m.
A progressive activist group is challenging the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to answer questions about an apparent party allegedly thrown at a bar in Hollywood on Friday night.
An LASD spokesman told KNX they are looking into the alleged party, but said it is unequivocally not their staff.
Knock.LA affiliated with the group Ground Game LA posted a video on social media allegedly showing sheriff's personnel arriving for a party at Sassafras Saloon on Vine Street for an "LASD party."
According to reports by CNN, at least one of the people attending the party was a Los Angeles police officer. However, CNN is not naming the officer.
"If you're so concerned, why don't you call the police," the alleged LAPD officer told a reporter from CNN who tried to observe the party.
