Two men are dead and two are wounded following a shootout on a North Hollywood street Monday evening.

LAPD Officer Liliana Preciado told LAist that at least six males were standing in the 5000 block of Klump Avenue when the shots were fired around 11:35 p.m. Monday. One man was pronounced dead at the scene and one man died in an ambulance en route to a local hospital. Two other men were taken to local hospitals, one in a private vehicle and one in an ambulance. KTLA reports that the other two injured men were listed as being in critical condition.

LAPD Lt. Mike Kozak told the AP that at least two weapons were fired multiple times during the incident. Two firearms were found at the scene, along with "numerous casings," according to Preciado. "At this point, the motive is unknown, and it's believed to be an isolated incident," she said.
