Three members of a rival gang are being blamed for a shooting in Watts that injured seven people, reports ABC 7. The gunmen opened fire on a party on Saturday, which was being held to raise funeral funds for a 22-year-old man who had been killed. In Saturday's shooting, no one was killed; six out of the seven injured were hit in the legs while dancing.

The shooting occurred around 1:00 a.m., and most victims were allegedly in their 20's.
