8 people shot, 3 stabbed after house party

Knives, guns and bottles were drawn in a fight after a party early Saturday near downtown Los Angeles, California, resulting in one death and 10 injuries, police said.

No one is in custody and the incident was not believed to be gang-related Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Cleon Joseph said.

Partygoers were leaving a birthday celebration around 2:05 a.m. at a house in the Boyle Heights neighborhood when the dispute occurred, Joseph said.

Eight people were shot, one fatally, and three were stabbed. A 22-year-old Hispanic man died of gunshot wounds, police said.

Police earlier Saturday said that 12 people had been shot.

    How is there no arrest? These people did not stab, shot, or injured themselves at the minimum these injured, witnesses who refuse to testify should be charged with disturbing the peace, faced a stiff fine, and holding time after treating injuries. Something should be done! Some form of justice should have been invoked for the life murdered, the firing if nameless bullets...hell you could have hit them with being under the influence of alcohol...but to do nothing after thus magnitude of violence is ludicrous!

    It's not uncommon for these "events" to be followed by zero arrests and said to be "non-gang" related before the incident is even investigatd. Why? Because US has a growing gang problem. This particular sort is shown to make you think it's "them" (illegals) when it's really us (legals) who do the most gang-banging...worldwide. Not to mention that about 80% of police investigations are done by paid informants, so immediate arrests are not needed. Isn't America prettier than ever!

    The fact is we need to build a fence along our border with Mexico. After that we can do one of two things.
    1. Round up the 12 million illegals and deport them. How? Offer rewards and have Illegal Alien Bounty Hunters (IABHs) track them down. Here is a reward amount guide:
    1. Illegal Alien male- $50
    2. IA female- $30
    3. IA pregnt female- $500
    4. IA child- $20
    Plus if we license the IABHs that means each state would get fee revenue. We can pay the bounties with left over stimulus money. Also bus sales and rentals will increase. Doesn't Ford make buses? Union autoworkers will have more work.
    2. Ah forget number two. I have decided I like my first one so much and I was thinking there could be a television series too.

    To numbaoneballa & ang: please do your selves and the rest of us a favor and take a reading comprehension course. Your responses show clear ignorance and you really don't belong here. Did you get a weekend pass? Maybe you could hook up and fatally shoot each other?

    Michelle I love your, "hookup and fatally shoot each other" line. That is so funny.
    Some people just don't get it. Can't be serious all the time. Although my idea sounds actually feasible.
