At least 3 shot in burning Hollywood homeAt least 3 people shot, wounded inside burning Hollywood home; shooter sought
LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A Los Angeles police SWAT team plans to search a burned home in Hollywood where at least three people were shot and wounded.
Authorities say a man and two women with gunshot wounds were rescued from the burning home at around 12:30 p.m. Thursday and officers thought they saw a fourth victim inside.
Meanwhile, it's unclear whether the shooter escaped.
More than 100 firefighters were called to the rambling single-story home but they could only fight flames from a distance because of fears about the shooter.
The three known victims were taken to a hospital in serious condition.
The fire gutted most of the home and a fire official says there's no chance anyone who may have been inside survived.
Lt. Andrew Neiman says a SWAT team has been called to search it.
