Six people are in stable condition today after suffering gunshot wounds in a gang-related shooting in Highland Park, police said.

The victims were shot Saturday about 9:40 p.m. after two suspects in a car opened fire on a house party near Figueroa Street and Avenue 55, Los Angeles Police Officer Gregory Baek said. At least one of the victims was female.

Some of the victims are members of the Dogtown gang, and police believe the shooters may be connected to the Avenues gang, Baek said.

No arrests have been made.
