Three Los Angeles teens were injured in shooting at house party

Three teenagers were injured during a shooting at a house party in Los Angeles.

One teen was shot in the back. It's likely he was trying to run to the police station for help.

The victims were transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Two of the victims were treated and released, but the third teen remains hospitalized listed in critical but stable condition after surgery.

Many streets in the area were shut down by police for several hours as investigators looked for suspects and for evidence. Some residents couldn't get back in their homes-

"There were just police cars everywhere we couldn't get in, we had to stay over somewhere else," said resident Jose Haro.

Residents said this isn't the first time something like this has happened. The neighborhood is filled with children and young families, and some said they are fed up of the crime and being afraid.
