On Sunday, a group of family, and friends gathered to watch a football game at a backyard. A gunman walked up and started shooting, killing four people and injuring six others according to authorities in Fresno, California.
About 35 to 40 people were in the house when the shooting began, including several children. Apparently, the shooter remains on the loose according to police.
First responders arrived at the home around 8 pm after receiving 911 calls and found that three people are down and several suffering from gunshot wounds. Fresno Police Deputy Chief Michael Reid told reporters. Officers immediately perform CPR.
There was no indication that the suspect knew the victims, according to Reid.
The four men who died were between 25 to 30 years old. Three of them were pronounced dead on the scene. The other one transported and died later in the Community Regional Medical Center.

Also taken to CRMC are five additional victims with non-life threatening gunshot wounds. Reid said the other one had a graze wound.
My heart goes out to the families that are victims of this senseless violence.
We are going to do everything we can to find out who the perpetrators are and bring them to justice.
No suspect information or suspect vehicle descriptions were available, Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley said at an earlier briefing.
More to come.
