4 people are reportedly dead and 6 more have been injured in a mass shooting at a backyard party in Fresno, California, police said Sunday evening.
Fresno Police Chief Andrew Hall said at least two suspects sneaked through an unlocked gate into a football viewing party in the house’s backyard and opened fire before fleeing on foot.
According to the police chief, it was not a random act, as the party was targeted. Hall made this known at a news conference, Monday.
“It appears that this incident was a targeted act of violence against this residence.”
The chief said several people at the party were involved in a recent disturbance, and police were looking into whether that incident was connected to the shooting.
No suspects have been identified, and police said multiple shooters were still on the loose.
