At least one person was killed in a shooting in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday night, fire officials said.

One man died and two were wounded Saturday night in a shooting at a downtown Los Angeles retail/apartment building.

The shooting was reported about 7:40 p.m. in the "South Park Lofts" apartment building at 818 S. Grand Ave., according to Officer G. Todd of the Los Angeles Police Department's Operations Center.

A 20-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, Todd said, after being found dead inside the building.

The other two men, ages 20 and 25, were taken by paramedics to a hospital and had stable vital signs, he said.

The suspects fled the scene, Todd said. They were described as four men between the ages of 20 and 30. As of Sunday morning, the shooter or shooters are still on the loose, and no arrests have been made.

Lieutenant Ryan Rabbett of the LAPD called it "a very chaotic scene, it's a very big scene" that spread across multiple floors and the outside of the apartment building. Detectives are looking at surveillance video to piece together what exactly happened.

No further details were immediately available.
