4 dead and 1 injured after shooting at Inglewood party

Four people were killed and one person was injured early on Sunday after more than 40 rounds were fired in an ‘ambush’ at a birthday party in Inglewood. The city’s mayor called the shooting the worst act of violence in the city in years.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched at 1:43 a.m. to a home in the 1300 block of Park Avenue, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher. The house was an Airbnb short-term rental, one of the tenants said. Sources said those involved in the crime were linked to a gang, but officials said they did not know the motive for the shooting and were looking for suspects.

Two of the victims who were killed, Breahna Stines and Marneysha Hamilton, were sisters. Their mother, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Tiffney, said the family gathered on Saturday at the home where the shooting took place to celebrate Stines’ 20th birthday, which was Sunday. Hamilton was 25 years old.

“They were both outgoing, beautiful girls,” the mother said, sitting next to a display of candles and two large photographs of her daughters that had been placed on the sidewalk at the crime scene. “They both had a future ahead of them, and to have it taken away from them,” their mother said, her voice trailing off.
