Two men were shot and sustained injuries that were not life-threatening when gunfire broke out in Venice's Oakwood Neighborhood, police said Tuesday night.

Multiple gunshots were reported around 8:15 p.m. in the 800 block of Indiana Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Police vehicles quickly swarmed the area and an LAPD helicopter circled overhead as officers began gathering evidence, a witness told The Times.

He said there were two to five suspects who reportedly fled in either a silver or black vehicle.
