Two people were killed and five others injured in a shooting at a Los Angeles park where cars were seen Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

The attack on Peck Park in the San Pedro community may have involved more than one gunman and appeared to have started a dispute between two parties, police capt said. Kelly Muniz of Los Angeles at a press conference early in the evening.

“Weapons have been found,” she said.

Four people were hospitalized in critical condition, Cmdr. Jay Mastick, the Los Angeles Police Department’s dockside commander, said earlier.

The injured were between the ages of 3 and 54, Los Angeles fire chief Erik Scott said at the news conference.

Muniz said a makeshift car show in the park was the “draw” for as many as 500 people who gathered before gunshots rang out. “It was not necessarily allowed,” said the captain.

The victims would initially be in the park’s baseball diamond, she said.

Police and firefighters said the attack was reported around 3:50 p.m.

No suspect or suspects have been identified or arrested. Police were looking for a white Mercedes-Benz that may have been involved in the attack, Mastick said before the press conference.

Agent Luis Garcia said the large number of officers ordered in the incident inspired police to issue a citywide tactical warning, allowing officers to remain on duty after their shift and receive overtime pay.

The fire brigade has divided the seven total injuries into four men and three women.

Todd Miyazawa and Andrew Blankstein contributed.
