Last night around 9:30 p.m., as a group of women stood outside the Ocean Avenue apartment building where a party was taking place, "a man dressed in all black opened fire," and struck two women who are thought to be between the ages of 30-40, according to cbs.com. The victims were taken to the hospital, and as of this morning one remained listed in serious condition and is having surgery for her injuries. "Police don't have a motive for the shooting and are now combing the area for a gunman." He is "described only as a male dressed in black," who "may have fled in a small, white car," reports MyFoxLA.
