Twelve people were shot at a home here Tuesday night, CBS Los Angeles reports. The Long Beach Fire Department says fire crews responding to the shooting found the bodies of three adult males.


They also found nine other people who were wounded and taken to hospitals. There was no immediate word on their conditions.

The Los Angeles Times quotes Long Beach Fire Department spokesperson Jake Heflin as saying firefighters found a scene "filled with chaos." 

According to police, two hooded suspects opened fire at what neighbors said was a Halloween party at the home.

The suspects fled and are still at large.

The Times says area residents heard as many as 20 shots.
