At least ten people were shot, four fatally, in Fresno, California, last night.

According to CNN, a group of about 40 people were gathered together watching football when the incident happened. As Michael Reid, Fresno Deputy Police Chief, explains, “Somebody came up on foot, possibly at least one suspect and began firing. They fired into the backyard where most of the people were in this party, striking 10 people.”

The victims of the shooting are all Asian men, ages 25-30.

There is no public information on the suspect currently available, there is also no word yet on if the suspect knew the victims. Police are looking into whether the shooting was gang-related.
