LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say three people died after attending a weekend rave in Fontana, California.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jodi Miller said Monday that nine people were transported from the HARD Summer Music Festival, and three were pronounced dead at local hospitals.

Two deaths occurred Saturday and one on Sunday. Miller says the cause of each death remains unknown.

The sheriff's coroner division plans to release names and ages of the deceased Monday afternoon.

The electronic dance music festival was held at an outdoor venue about 50 miles east of Los Angeles.
