At least seven people were injured in a shooting in Long Beach, California, on Saturday evening, according to police.

Officers with the Long Beach Police Department responded to the shooting in the area of ​​South Street and Paramount Boulevard around 11:15 p.m. PT.

“Approximately seven victims have been reported at this time and all victims were self-transported or transported by LBFD to local hospitals,” the department said in a statement. Police have not shared what happened before the shooting.
