||| KTLA 5 |||

Authorities say two men have fatally shot in a Long Beach law office on Friday. The two shooting victims were dead by the time police arrived at the office on the 300 block of East San Antonio Drive.

Upon arrival, they discovered a third male shooting victim who is in serious but not critical condition. Police say all three of the victims were employed at the law firm and the incident appeared to be a "workplace homicide". Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia confirmed the workplace homicide on Twitter.
