LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say one person was killed and four injured after a shooting at a party ahead of the BET Awards in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles police officer Drake Madison says shots were reported at a Vermont Avenue venue shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday, killing one person and wounding four others.

Madison says it was not immediately clear whether the shooter attended the gathering or fired from outside. City News Service reports the shooting occurred at Monalizza Restaurant and Banquet Hall.

Madison says the party was related to the BET Awards, but it was not part of the official events.

The BET Awards will air live at 8 p.m. Eastern.
