PALMDALE – Two males were wounded early Sunday morning at the scene of a large underground party in Palmdale.
Someone called authorities at 12:13 a.m. and reported gunfire in the area of 20th Street East and Avenue Q, according to Lt. Ken Wright of the sheriff’s Palmdale Station.
Two males could be heard screaming in the background, Wright said.
Deputies got to the scene in eight minutes and saw vehicles hurriedly leaving the location. They were directed by witnesses to several vehicles but stops turned up nothing, the lieutenant said.
One victim was located in a dirt field and a second was found at a home near 17th Street East and Avenue R. Both were transported to the hospital by ambulance.
The victims are in their teens and both sustained gunshot wounds, but neither suffered life-threatening injuries, according to Wright.
Suspect information was not immediately available, and Wright said it was not immediately clear if the shooting was gang-related.
Sources said the shooting happened at an underground social media party held at an industrial complex in the 1800 block of East Avenue Q in Palmdale, but sheriff’s officials did not confirm this information.
