LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are searching for at least two suspects in a shooting that left three people dead and 12 wounded at a restaurant operating out of a converted home.

Officer Jenny Houser said Sunday that detectives are still trying to determine a motive for the gunfire that erupted during a birthday celebration attended by more than 100 people.

A preliminary investigation determined an argument preceded the shooting early Saturday.

Police questioned two possible suspects shortly after the incident, but officials said later no one was in custody. Investigators have not released suspect descriptions.

Three people died at the scene. Houser says two victims were in critical condition late Saturday. Two of the wounded were released and the others had wounds that were not considered life-threatening.
