Some report that 11 people were murdered over the weekend, some report 12. Whichever the number, it is greater than the normal homicide rate in Los Angeles County, an unfortunate two or three per day.

At least nine of the deaths occurred within Los Angeles: four in South LA, four in the Valley and one in Northeast LA.

Authorities suspect several were gang related.
