Sheriff's deputies are looking for suspects who rolled up to a backyard barbecue in a dark vehicle and fired off a rifle that killed two men and injured two others.

One man died at the scene and a teenage boy died after being transported to a hospital. Their names have not been released.

The shooting happened last night around 9:30 in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles near the intersection of Alameda and 92nd streets, according to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The suspects and suspect vehicle are still outstanding.
