Beverly Crest shooting: 3 killed, 4 injured during shooting outside rental property

Three women were killed and four others were injured during a shooting at a short-term rental property Saturday morning in the Beverly Crest area of Los Angeles, which borders Beverly Hills.

Police were dispatched to a home on Ellison and Arby drives, located in the hills off Benedict Canyon Drive, around 2:30 a.m. after receiving reports of a shooting with people down, Sgt. Bruce Borihanh with the Los Angeles Police Department said. Officials said the shooting happened in front of the home.

When officers arrived at the scene, they located multiple people suffering from gunshot wounds. Three victims were declared dead at the scene. They were identified as 33-year-old Iyana Hutton of Chicago, 29-year-old Nenah Davis from Bolingbrook, Illinois, and 26-year-old Destiny Sims of Buckeye, Arizona, according to the LA County coroner's office.

Two of the victims were transported by paramedics to the hospital and two others self-transported to a hospital in Sherman Oaks. Officials Monday said two of the victims are still in critical condition while the two others were treated and then released from the hospital.

Police said there was some kind of gathering at the location, but did not confirm if it was a party. It’s unclear if the suspect(s) are in custody.

Police confirm this was not an active shooter incident.  

This is at least the sixth mass shooting in California this month.

This shooting in Beverly Crest comes exactly a week after 11 people were killed during a mass shooting at a dance studio in Monterey Park
