A reveler has died and two others are in critical condition after a shooting at a Beverly Hills mansion insiders say they were thrown to an NFL star.

One of those victims was later confirmed to have died in the hospital.
A security guard working at the lavish party said it had been thrown for an NFL player, without confirming who.

The Instagram post said: ‘Big Hollywood Hills mansion party at Mulholland Drive shots fired people shots many big ballers were gambling lost a lot of money, we are damn, then a bunch of gangsters came in and robbed everyone and started shooting everyone .
“A lot of people with money and weapons and gangsters went crazy, I ran for my life, it was crazy.”
He filmed himself as he walked away from the party and heard it said, “Oh my god, someone was shot there. I am gone.’
In a statement, the fire brigade said, “Two patients are in a critical condition and one patient is in a serious condition. All three were transported from the scene to the hospitals in the area. ‘
One of the victims was a man in her thirties and another a woman in her forties, CBS reported.
A fourth person also sustained a wrist injury while walking away, LAFD said.
There were two shots, according to the broadcaster, the first of which included about 20 shots and then another burst of several shots.
Earlier in the evening, Los Angeles police arrived at the property after numerous noise complaints, but police said they could not enter without a warrant.
Officers said they were on site for traffic and noise control from 6:30 PM and an estimated 200 people attended the party.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, LA County has banned “parties of any size.”
Very few of those present seemed to distance themselves socially and did not wear face masks while dancing and frolicking in the pool.

Kennie D. Leggett, security manager for the rented mansion event, had previously told CBS: “We have money. We are people. I mean, this COVID just pushes us everywhere, and we don’t have anything, so all we have is Airbnbs to rent pools for our kids, to do great things and things like that. ‘
Leggett told CBS that his team planned to stay until 3 a.m. when the party would end.
The broadcaster contacted the property management company, who said they were unaware of plans for a party and that this was against the rental terms.
It is not clear whether someone has been arrested.
