One man is dead and two more wounded after a shooting erupted at a pool party in a wealthy section of Granada Hills Saturday night.

KTLA reports that police were called to the house on the 12400 block of Longacre Avenue around 9 p.m. and found three men suffering from gunshot wounds.

One of the men, who was in his 20s, was taken to a hospital, where he died from his injuries, according to ABC-7. The other two were taken to a hospital, where their conditions remain unknown.

Authorities are working to determine the identities of the shooting victims. Police told KTLA that information about the party had been posted on social media, and it grew to "a few hundred people," and that the homeowners didn't know so many people would show up.

According to CBS L.A., the 5-bedroom, $1.49 million home belongs to "an unidentified celebrity." The house's basketball court was reportedly the scene of the shooting.

We found this "Mansion Pool Party" event in Granada Hills organized by "Party Image Media Group" on Facebook, which appears likely to have been the scene of the shooting.

The suspect is male, and was last seen running away from the house on foot, but that is all the information police had as of this morning.
