Three men were shot dead and two other people suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds Sunday while attending what police called "some sort of residential party" in Downey.

Paul Gonzales was a 33- year-old resident of Los Angeles, Shawn Garcia was a 36-year-old Pico Rivera resident and there was no city of residence available for 43-year-old Brandon Chavez, according to the coroner's office.

Officers were sent to the 8100 block of Leeds Street at about 12:45 a.m. regarding a call of gunshots at the location, said Sgt. Perry Miller of the Downey Police Department.

Gonzales, Garcia, and Chavez were pronounced dead at the scene, Miller said. Paramedics rushed a man and a woman to a hospital for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

No further information was immediately available.
