Three people are dead and nine others wounded after a mass shooting during a Halloween party at a home in California.  

Police and firefighters were called to the house in Long Beach on Tuesday at about 10.45pm following reports of multiple shots being fired.

Three men aged in their 20s were found dead in the backyard of a house behind a nail salon.

Five other victims were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and another four were also later transported to hospital.

At least one suspect opened fire at the house and fled the scene, according to authorities.

Investigators were unable to give a motive for the shooting, provide a description of the shooter or shooters, and could not say whether they fled on foot or in a vehicle.

Witnesses said people wearing costumes were seen limping out of the building following the attack. 

Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Karen Owens said the scene was filled with chaos when first responders arrived.  

Three bodies were visible on the ground as paramedics were treating people on a grassy area outside a nail salon before loading them into ambulances, ABC7 reports. 

Neighbours told the Long Beach Press-Telegram that up to 30 shots were fired, and that a white vehicle had sped past the scene around the same time.

Residents said they heard a car speeding up to a home behind a nail salon before up to 30 shots rang out in multiple rounds of gunfire

Lambert Alcendor, 21, told the newspaper that he was walking to a liquor store when a white vehicle swerved in front of the nail salon before '20 to 30 shots' rang out.

Although he didn't see gunfire coming from the vehicle, he said he was confident that's where the shots were fired from.

Another local, who gave his name only as 'Martin', said he heard a car accelerating ahead of him and swerving suddenly before the shots started.

'Then all I hear is pop, pop, pop, a bunch of pops– maybe like 20 shots. It was a lot,' he said.

The street where the shooting occurred is primarily a residential area, with a few stores dotted around a busy intersection.

Locals said gunshots are occasionally heard, but that mass shootings of this kind are rare.
