Suspect Killed, Three Others Injured in Universal City Walk Shooting

iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- One person is dead and three others hurt after a battle of the DJs contest at Universal City Walk in Los Angeles. The incident happened early Monday morning on the main walkway near the club Infusion Lounge, according to ABC News affiliate KABC-TV.

Details about what triggered the police-involved shooting remain unclear. Police responded to a "group disturbance" call at around 1:15 a.m.  Upon their arrival, shots were fired from the crowd.

"The cops pepper-sprayed everybody though at first," said a witness who was at Infusion Lounge when the chaos erupted.

Police spotted the suspect with a handgun before a shooting involving an officer occurred.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, said Sgt. Barry Montgomery according to KABC.

Three other people were transported to the hospital to receive treatment for their injuries.
