Two men were taken to hospital, two opted to seek their own medical attention, and three were pronounced dead at the scene.

Customers described a fight before the gunshots rang out.
“We just ran into the bar and we just took cover because after the fight we heard ‘pop! pop!’” Gable House Bowl patron Jesus Perez told the Los Angeles Times.
