A gunman fired a rifle across the parking lot of a popular Lancaster nightclub early Sunday morning, killing one of the club's managers and injuring an owner, another employee and a customer, authorities and the club's management said.
The shooting occurred shortly after 12:30 a.m. outside Schooners, a restaurant, bar and nightclub in a shopping center in the 43800 block of 15th Street West.
The victims were taken to nearby hospitals.
Marshall Garrison, 50, was pronounced dead from wounds to his torso.
The other three victims are expected to survive, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Sonia Parra.
The unidentified gunman fired from across the parking lot, possibly from the direction of a medical clinic, authorities and employees said. Bullets pierced the glass of the restaurant's front door.
The motive for the shooting is under investigation. No arrests were made.
Authorities did not release the names of the wounded, but employees said one of them was Patrick O'Donnell, one of Schooners' owners.
