Police say five homeless people were found shot to death in a makeshift camp near some Los Angeles-area freeway ramps.

Long Beach police say they responded to an anonymous call Sunday morning. They found the bodies of five adults in a brush-filled area between some commercial buildings and a freeway interchange.

Deputy Police Chief Robert Luna says all five had been shot.
