Four people were injured in a shooting Saturday morning outside a West Los Angeles restaurant frequented by celebrities following a Justin Bieber concert, authorities say.
The shooting occurred just before 3 a.m. PT Saturday outside The Nice Guy, an Italian restaurant that pays “homage to a decadent era of Mafia bars and restaurants,” on North La Ceinega Blvd.
Three of the four victims, including a 19-year-old male, a 60-year-old male and 24-year-old male, were each shot and remain in stable condition, according to police.
Los Angeles authorities immediately transported the 19-year-old and 60-year-old victims to nearby hospitals. The third, 24-year-old victim, and a fourth victim left the scene and brought themselves to hospitals. The fourth victim is also in stable condition, police said in a Saturday afternoon update.
