WEST HILLS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Two people were killed in a shooting at a park in West Hills Wednesday night, police said.

The shooting was reported just after 9 p.m. near Shadow Ranch Park at Vanowen Street and Sale Avenue.

One male victim was dead at the scene. A second victim was reported to be conscious and breathing, but later died at a hospital.

The park is located across the street from de Toledo High School and Congregation Shir Ami synagogue.

The shooting happened just feet from where a group of teens was playing soccer in the park.
