Three men were killed and four others injured in a shooting Friday night at a bowling alley in Southern California, according to local police.
The shooting took place at the Gable House Bowl, a bowling and gaming venue that stays open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, according to its website.
Police have not specified what led to the shooting, which was reported just before midnight Friday, but witnesses told the AP that it was preceded by a fight between two large groups.
Police say no Gable House Bowl employees were injured.
“We just ran right into the bar and took cover. All we heard was just, like two people got shot,” Jesus Perez, who was inside Gable House Bowl during the shooting, told the Los Angeles Times.
“I grabbed my niece and started running toward the far end of the bowling alley,” Hamad told the AP. “As we were running, we heard 15 shots.” While leaving, Hamad said he saw a woman crying over a man who had been shot several times in his head and neck.
Gable House Bowl employees told the Times that violence is uncommon at the establishment, which is considered to be family friendly.
