A search continued Monday for three suspects following a shooting that left a 25-year-old woman dead and three others injured in South Los Angeles.

According to investigators, a fight broke out among several men and women about 3:40 p.m. Sunday in the area of 59th and Figueroa streets. A dark-colored vehicle with three people inside drove up to the scene, and the occupants opened fire.

The daughter later died. Her name was not immediately released.

The shooters were not involved in the fight, officials said. No detailed descriptions of the suspects or their vehicle were available.
