3 Dead, 4 Injured in Bowling Alley Shooting

Three men are dead and another four people injured after a shooting at a bowling alley near Los Angeles Friday night. Police responded to the Gable House Bowl in Torrance just before midnight. Witnesses say the shooting stemmed from a disagreement between two groups that spiraled into violence. One witness described it as a "huge" brawl that lasted five minutes, reports the AP. Three men were killed at the scene, two more were taken to the hospital, and two others had minor injuries.

"There was a big group of people, seemed like they were having fun earlier," witness Dana Scott tells ABC News. "People were laughing, having a good time, next thing we know there was a fight and it was the girls. ... So they were yelling and cussing and fighting and people were on the floor and then some young men got into the fight." Gunshots were heard soon after. (Read more shooting stories.)
