One person was killed last night following a fight at a house party held last night in East L.A. on the 1400 block of Downey Street.

A few people were allegedly involved in the fight, which led to one person shooting another, who "later died at a local hospital," reports

In another party-turned-crime scene incident, an argument broke out at a birthday party on Hart Street in Winnetka late last night, prompting the host to ask those involved to leave.

One of those booted out was Marquis DeJon Jiles, 25, who then hopped into a car belonging to another guest and drove the car into a group of three people standing outside. The impact injured two people, and killed a third; 29-year old Maziar Tehrani of Encino died later at a the hospital.

Jiles, however, took the incident one step further by driving into another yard, then calling 911 and claiming he'd been the victim of a shooting. He was subsequently booked on murder charges.
