LOS ANGELES (AP) At least three people were shot and wounded Thursday at a burning home in Hollywood where another victim or the gunman may have perished, authorities said.
At the height of the blaze, TV news helicopters over the scene showed officers, some with shotguns, crouching near the corner of an apartment building as firefighters trained hoses on the flames from a distance.
Other firefighters stayed behind the protection of a fire engine.
The rambling single-story home already was smoking when firefighters were called to the scene shortly after 12:30 p.m.
A 34-year-old man and two 38-year-old women had been shot and police took them from the front of the home, authorities said. They were taken to the hospital in serious condition but were expected to survive, police and fire officials said.
Two hours after the blaze, police planned to send a SWAT team inside to search it, Neiman said.
