CBS News notes seven victims were injured in total, at least three of whom are shooting victims.
Two of the gunshot victims, a man and a woman, were transported to the hospital in critical condition.
CBS LA’s Laurie Perez tweeted about the incident:
Getting close to Peck Park in San Pedro now…scene of shooting with reported multiple victims. LAPD officer just waved us down and told us to “be careful, suspects still outstanding and they’re wearing body armor.” @cbsla #kcal #crime #peckpark #sanpedro

California has universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, a red flag law, a ten-day waiting period for gun purchases, gun registration requirements, a limit on the number of guns law-abiding citizens can buy each month, stringent requirements on “ghost guns” and gun parts kits, and background checks for ammunition sales, among other controls.
On June 5, 2022, Breitbart News pointed out that Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety ranks California the number-one state for gun control. FBI data shows California was also the number-one state for “active shooter incidents” in 2021.
