Two people have been killed and at least five others injured after gunfire erupted at a park in Los Angeles.

Local police said the shooting occurred around 3.50pm at Peck Park, in LA's San Pedro neighbourhood, during a car show.

The LA Police Department said via social media it was not an active shooter situation but provided no more information.

LAPD Captain Kelly Muniz said the casualties were reported at the baseball diamond.

Police have not identified the victims.

"The original call came out as having multiple shooting victims on the baseball diamond at Peck Park," Captain Muniz said in a news conference.

"As we speak here, this is an ongoing, active crime scene, and we are continuing to clear the park for evidence and potentially additional victims.

"We don't know exactly how many shooters we have at this point."

The LA Fire Department said the incident occurred at or near the show, and that at least three people suffered gunshot wounds.
