Two men were shot and killed Tuesday by Huntington Beach police after officers stopped a vehicle in Westminster and heard a gunshot, authorities said.

The two officers fired multiple rounds after they heard a shot from inside the vehicle, said Lt. Russell Reinhart of the Huntington Beach Police Department. "I'm not sure if it was aimed at the officers, or who it was aimed at," he said. At least one firearm was recovered, he said.

A woman was with the two men who were killed. She was not injured. The shooting occurred about 4:30 p.m. near Hammon Place and Westminster Boulevard.
