Two people were killed and five others were injured Sunday after shots were fired at a large park in San Pedro where people had gathered for a car show, a baseball game and other activities.

Multiple victims suffered gunshot wounds, the LAPD said. All the victims are adults, aged between 23 and 54 years.

Details about what led up to the Peck Park shooting weren’t immediately available, but authorities said it stemmed from some kind of dispute involving one or more shooters. Police said the shooting was not considered an active shooter incident.

“There were probably like 15 shots, and then a couple of minutes later like 15 more shots,” a witness told our sister network NBCLA.

Fire personnel and police responded shortly before 4 pm to the sprawling park in the 500 block of Western Avenue. Witnesses said gunshots were heard at various locations in the park, including near a baseball field.

“We were sitting there, relaxing, enjoying our Sunday, and then we heard gunshots,” said another witness, who was at the game. “I started seeing people running. The next thing I knew, the shots were getting closer and closer.”
No arrests were reported. No one was allowed to leave the park during the police investigation.

Amenities at the park include a baseball field, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, hiking trails, and a child care center. The park is the largest of four in San Pedro and is named after notable landowner and developer George H. Peck and his family.
