At least nine people were shot, several of them fatally, when someone opened fire on a backyard family gathering in Fresno, California, on Sunday night, police said.
No further information was immediately available, including the number of people who were killed. An unspecified number of other victims were listed in critical condition at hospitals.
Police Lt. Bill Dooley told NBC affiliate KSEE that no arrests had been made in shooting in southeast Fresno, which came as the family and friends were watching a football game in the backyard when one or more people sneaked in and began shooting.
