DOWNEY At least three people were killed and at least two were injured in a shooting in a Los Angeles suburb, CBS Los Angeles reports.

Downey Fire Department officials told the station they responded to the shooting at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at two different locations. A man and a woman were killed at a workplace, and another woman was killed at a home two blocks away, according to The Associated Press.
