6-Month-Old Baby, 5 Others Shot And Killed In California Home

Six people, including a 6-month-old baby and 17-year-old mother, were killed following a shooting in central California early Monday morning.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office told KFSN that the shooting occurred in Goshen just after 3:30 a.m. and that people who called 9-1-1 thought there was an active shooter in the neighborhood due to the number of shots they heard.

When police arrived at the residence, they immediately noticed two victims in the doorway of a home, with a third nearby. Police found six total victims, with one person still alive. That person died after being taken to the hospital, Fox 26 reported. The two victims who were minors both had been shot in the head, police told the outlet.

Police also said they believe there were two shooters and that the incident was related to gang activity. Authorities continue to search for clues as to what motivated the shooting, the Visalia Times Delta reported. A search warrant had been served on the house just one week prior, with police looking for narcotics.

It does not appear as though anyone has been taken into custody for the shootings.

Deputies have closed off the area surrounding the house as they continue to investigate, with several search warrants served. Police are also asking neighbors for video surveillance that may show the killers.

The investigation remains active, sheriff’s spokeswoman Liz Jones told the Delta.
