NORTHRIDGE, Calif. — Los Angeles police say four people have been found shot to death, their bodies face down, outside a suburban house.

Lt. Terri Brinkmeyer said the victims were discovered around 4:30 a.m. Sunday outside a large white house in suburban Northridge. She said homicide detectives were at the scene collecting evidence.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith told the Los Angeles Times that the gender and age of the victims were not immediately known because the bodies were face-down and have not been moved yet.

KNX-AM reported that the bodies were lined next to each other along a walkway. Smith told the station it was too early to determine a suspect or motive.
