FoxNews reports that police are on the hunt Monday for at least two pistol-wielding suspects who opened fire Sunday night at a backyard football viewing party in Fresno, killing four people in what investigators are calling a “targeted act of violence.”
The two suspects, who have not yet been identified, entered the property through an unlocked side gate around 8 p.m. before they “fired randomly into the crowd” with semi-automatic pistols, Fresno Police Chief Andrew Hall said. They struck 10 people, he added, before running off.
“This was not a random act,” Hall told reporters Monday. “It appears this incident was a targeted act of violence against this residence.”
When asked if he had a message for the suspects, Hall gave them a warning.
“We are coming for you,” he said.
Three people were reported dead at the scene following the shooting, while a fourth died at a nearby hospital. Of the six who were wounded, two were still recovering at hospitals as of midday Monday…
BREAKING UPDATE: The Fresno Police Department says at least 9 people have been shot and multiple people killed at a home near Peach and Olive.
