Three people were killed and four others were injured in a shooting in Los Angeles, local media reported. This is the fourth mass shooting in California this month.
The shooting took place in Beverly Crest, a prime neighbourhood in Los Angeles, according to the news agency Associated Press.
The incident comes just days after a man opened fire at a California dance venue after Lunar New Year celebrations. Eleven people were killed and 9 others injured in the mass shooting on Sunday.
Days later, a gunman killed seven of his co-workers at a mushroom farm in Half Moon Bay, south of San Francisco.
The two horrific episodes, both involving semi-automatic weapons, sparked bafflement from California's large Asian American community, as people struggled to come to terms with what had happened.
