Three people are hurt after a shooting at a private party for a biker club in Hyde Park on Saturday night.

The party was taking place in building near the intersection of 54th Street and South Van Ness Avenue, with the space rented out for the event. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, an argument broke out and the man left the party only to return around 9:30 p.m. with a female companion and open fire on people at the doorway. The three victims were all hit in the torso, but are all expected to survive according to KTLA.

All three victims were listed in critical, but stable, condition at a local hospital . Witnesses said the shooter and his companion left the scene on foot, and the only description police have as of this reporting was that the shooter was a male in his 20s or 30s.
