CALABASAS (CNS) - Authorities sought the public's help Monday to locate a suspect who shot and wounded a person at a party in Calabasas, then fled the scene.
Deputies were called around 11:30 p.m. Saturday to the 5000 block of Parkway Calabasas, near the Ventura (101) Freeway, according to the sheriff's department.
Witnesses told investigators a brief argument occurred between two groups of partygoers, prompting the shooting, according to the sheriff's department.
The victim suffered a gunshot wound to her left shoulder, sheriff's officials said. She told deputies she was on the second-story balcony of the residence when she heard about two to three gunshots.
"She immediately felt a burning sensation in her back and realized she had been shot," according to the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. "Her friend took her to the bathroom and assisted her to the brick wall where she rendered aid until the sheriffs arrived."
A suspect description was not immediately available.
Anyone with information was asked to contact Detectives Alvarez or Awad at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station at 818-878-1808. Anyone who prefers to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
