BEVERLY HILLS (CNS) - Los Angeles police detectives served a search warrant in Beverly Hills Wednesday in an ongoing investigation into a shooting earlier this year in the Beverly Crest area that killed three women and left two other people wounded.
The shooting was reported on Jan. 28 at about 2:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of North Ellison Drive, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The fatally injured women were identified as Iyana Hutton, 33, of Chicago; Nenah Davis, 29, of Boilingbrook, Illinois; and Destiny Sims, 26, of Buckeye, Arizona.
The women were found fatally shot inside a parked car outside a residence that authorities said was being used as a short-term rental. Police said there was a gathering at the location. Authorities said at least 30 shots were fired, and witnesses told investigators that several cars were seen driving away from the area after the gunfire erupted.
Detectives from the LAPD's Robbery-Homicide Division were handling the investigation.
"Earlier today (Wednesday), Robbery-Homicide Division detectives served a search warrant at an apartment building in the 8600 block of Wilshire (Boulevard) in the city of Beverly Hills," an LAPD statement said.
"As the homicide investigation continued, detectives compiled and disseminated a Crime Alert with information they received from both witnesses and nearby surveillance video," the statement continued. "Detectives discovered that the suspects responsible for the triple homicide were last seen driving a blue 4-door Tesla with damage to the right front fender and no license plates."
Tips from people who saw a vehicle matching that description in the West Los Angeles and Beverly Hills areas led investigators to the apartment building Wednesday morning, police said.
"A warrant was obtained to search the apartment," police said. "Detectives discovered that the apartment was empty and are in the process of obtaining any forensic evidence that may have been left behind."
Detectives were continuing their efforts to identity the suspects, and urged anyone with information about the shooting to call the Robbery- Homicide Division at 213-486-6890, 877-LAPD-247, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222- TIPS.
