LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff's deputies say a 14-year-old girl is dead and a 12-year-old girl and a man are hospitalized after a shooting in south Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Benjamin Grubb says details are still sketchy but the shooting was reported at 10:20 p.m. Wednesday. It occurred at 97th Street and Normandie Avenue.

Detectives say several people were gathered outside when some men approached and opened fire. The girls and a 21-year-old man were shot and taken to a local hospital. The 14-year-old girl was pronounced dead but it was unknown how seriously the other two victims were injured.

Investigators say no arrests have been made and no motive is known.

Grubb didn't know if the victims were celebrating the Fourth of July.
