Six people shot dead in ‘horrific massacre’ in US state of California
Six people, including a 17-year-old mother and a six-month old baby, were killed in a shooting at a home in Goshen, California, on Monday, authorities said.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux described the attack as targeted and calling it a "horrific massacre."
Six victims were shot dead at the 6800 Block of Harvest Road, Boudreaux told reporters on Monday.
Boudreaux added there were at least two suspects who had not been caught.
"We also believe that this is not a random act of violence. We believe that this was a targeted family. We believe that there are gang associations involved in this scene, as well as potential narcotics investigations," Boudreaux said.
The official added that narcotics search warrants were conducted by the sheriff's office at that resident last week.
Authorities responded early morning on Monday after multiple shots were heard and found the victims as they arrived on the scene. Some victims were found in the street while others were found in the house.
