California Shooting

At least four people were killed in a family gathering at Fresno in California.

US media reported that rescue crews respond to a shooting at a family gathering in southeast Fresno.

Police said that 10 people were shot, four of them fatally, when someone opened fire on a backyard family gathering in Fresno, California, on Sunday night.

Some of the other victims were in critical condition at hospitals, some listed as stable.

US media quoted Police Lt. Bill Dooley who said that no suspect or suspects had been identified in the shooting, which was reported shortly before 8 p.m. He said the family and friends were watching a football game in the backyard when one or more people sneaked in and began shooting.

Soon after the incident, massive video shares were seen on social media regarding the incident.

Moreover, police said that officers and detectives are canvassing the area searching for witnesses and anyone with surveillance cameras that may have captured the suspect(s).

Last month, shooting left three dead and nine injured in South California.

According to the public information officer of Long Beach Fire Department Jake Heflin, the shooting took place around 10.44 pm.

He further stated, “Upon arrival, the engine company and the paramedic unit identified a scene obviously full of chaos.”

The officer further said “it was not clear if the attack was the work of just one shooter. No suspects were in custody and no motive had been immediately determined. Heflin said he did not information on the condition of the wounded.”

Long Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer De Prez said that responding officers discovered victims both outside and inside the residence.
