Police are treating the scene where five homeless people were found dead this morning as a murder scene. An anonymous 8:30 a.m. call alerted police to the makeshift camp in a "dense brush-filled area between some commercial buildings and a freeway interchange on West Wardlow Road just east of Santa Fe Avenue, according to Long Beach police Sgt. Dina Zapalski," per CBS2. The area is abut the 405/710 freeway interchange forcing some closures on a collector road and transition road between the freeways.
