DOWNEY, Calif. – Three men who were shot to death while attending a party in Downey were publicly identified Monday.
Paul Gonzales was a 33- year-old resident of Los Angeles, Shawn Garcia was a 36-year-old Pico Rivera resident and there was no city of residence available for 43-year-old Brandon Chavez, according to the coroner’s office.
The victims were attending “some sort of house party,” according to Downey police Sgt. Perry Miller.
Officers were sent to the 8100 block of Leeds Street at about 12:45 a.m. Sunday on a call of gunshots, Miller said.
Gonzalez, Garcia and Chavez were pronounced dead at the scene, he said. Paramedics rushed a man and a woman to a hospital with non-life- threatening gunshot wounds.
The shooting was believed an isolated incident with no outstanding suspects, police told the LA Times.
