LOS ANGELES — Police say one person was killed and five injured in two separate incidents at parties ahead of the BET Awards in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles police officer Drake Madison says one person was killed and four wounded by gunfire early Sunday at the Monalizza Restaurant & Banquet Hall. It was not immediately clear whether the shooter attended the party or fired from outside, he said.
In a separate incident, Madison says a man was stabbed in the stomach Saturday night at the Lure nightclub.
Police are searching for suspects in both incidents. The venues are not in the same immediate area.
Madison says the parties were related to the BET Awards but not part of the official events.
The BET Awards will air live at 8 p.m. Eastern.
