LOS ANGELES—At least four people were shot or injured on Feb. 12 at an afterparty following a Justin Bieber concert on the outskirts of West Hollywood, authorities said.

Police were sent to the 400 block of North La Cienega Boulevard, between Beverly Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, at 2:45 a.m., according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division.

“They [witnesses] heard a fight outside, when multiple shots were fired,” Madison said.

TMZ reported that the afterparty occurred at The Nice Guy restaurant, near the Pacific Design Center, where Bieber had performed a concert whose audience reportedly included Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Tobey Maguire, Kendall Jenner, and Khloe Kardashian.

A 19-year-old man, a 20-year-old man, a 60-year-old man, and possibly a 22-year-old man—who left the scene—were wounded, Madison said. Two ambulances rushed three of the victims to a hospital.

That account was corroborated by the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Brian Humphrey, who said police called his department at 2:49 a.m. regarding the shooting.

The fourth victim, the 22-year-old man, may have called authorities at about 3:16 a.m., while in the 10300 block of Wilshire Boulevard, at Comstock Avenue, to report that he had been shot or wounded, Humphrey said.

Paramedics took that person to a hospital, with unspecified injuries.

No arrests or suspect information were reported. TMZ reported that the shooting took place as a fight broke out involving rapper Kodak Black, but Madison could not corroborate that. The entertainment media’s website posted a video from the scene in which 10 gunshots could be heard.
