* UPDATE: LAPD now confirming six people injured.

The LAPD said that several people were left injured late Saturday night during a Highland Park shooting near Avenue 54 and Monte Vista Street. One person on Twitter said that six people were injured in the shooting reported at about 10 pm. But LAPD Lt. Joseph Satow at the Northeast Division said he could not confirm a number late Saturday night. “Several people were injured,” Satow said. “We are still sorting things out.”

One Highland Park resident who lives near the shooting scene reported hearing multiple shots at about 10 pm. “Just heard a bunch of gun shots from my window, people screaming,” said the resident in an email. “The cops are out in force.”
