CALABASAS, Calif. – Authorities sought the public’s help Monday to locate a suspect who shot and wounded a person at a party in Calabasas, then fled the scene.
Deputies were called around 11:30 p.m. Saturday to the 5000 block of Pathway Calabasas, according to the sheriff’s department.
Witnesses told investigators a brief argument occurred between two groups of partygoers, prompting the shooting, according to the sheriff’s department.
The victim suffered a gunshot wound to her left shoulder, sheriff’s officials said. She told deputies she was on the second-story balcony of the residence when she heard about two to three gunshots.
“She immediately felt a burning sensation in her back and realized she had been shot,” according to the sheriff’s department’s Lost Hills station. “Her friend took her to the bathroom and assisted her to the brick wall where she rendered aid until the sheriffs arrived.”
A suspect description was not immediately available.
