2 killed during raucous World Series celebrations in Sylmar, police say

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two people were killed in Sylmar during unruly celebrations following the Dodgers' World Series victory, police say.

After the team's Game 6 victory Wednesday, there were celebrations throughout the region, some of them involving fireworks, others involving vandalism, graffiti and car spinouts.

In Sylmar that night, dozens of people crowded the intersection of Polk Street and Glenoaks Boulevard. Cars were doing doughnuts in the street and fans were lighting fireworks.

At one point, apparently two men with baseball bats approached a car and smashed in the window, police say.

That set off an altercation and people from the crowd chased after them down the street, as did the vandalized vehicle.

There was a shooting and two people were hit by bullets. It wasn't clear if they were the men who had committed the initial vandalism or what involvement they had in the incident.

Anyone with information, or those who may have captured video footage of the incident on cellphones or cameras, were asked to call Valley Bureau Homicide detectives at 818-374-9550 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
