LANCASTER, Calif. – Two men were hospitalized Sunday morning for treatment of wounds suffered in a shooting at a quinceanera they were attending in Lancaster.
The shooting was reported at 12:45 a.m. in the 6500 block of East Avenue K, according to Lt. Michael Prottung of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“The suspect got into an argument with a partygoer, left and returned with a handgun, then shot the person he was arguing with and another person who tried to intervene,” Prottung said.
The suspect fled in a gray car, he said. He was described as a Black man in his 20s with dreadlocks.
