Gunfire broke out at a park in Los Angeles, killing two people and injuring five others on July 24.

The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) said that four men and three women were injured and brought to the hospital following gunfire at or near a car show at Peck Park in the community of San Pedro.

The injured ranged in age from 23 to 54, LAFD Captain Erik Scott said at a press conference.

Authorities later said that two people died.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said that the attack took place at around 3:50 p.m. and may have involved more than one shooter.

According to witnesses, hundreds of people were gathered for the car show and other activities around the park when gunfire erupted.

Officers found some weapons at the scene, LAPD Captain Kelly Muniz said.

LAPD declared a citywide tactical alert.
