LOS ANGELES—At least six people were sent to hospitals after a shooting Aug. 28 inside a bar in Boyle Heights, authorities said.

A suspect is in custody and all the victims are expected to survive their wounds, according to Officer Rosario Cervantes of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

Officers were sent to the bar in the 2400 block of Whittier Boulevard at about 1 a.m. in response to a radio call of a shooting, Cervantes said. She said four males and two females were shot, and three of the victims took themselves to hospitals.
