Football watch party shooting in Fresno, California: what we know

A shooting in Fresno, California, on Sunday night has left at least four people dead and six people wounded.

It occurred at a football watch party. The suspect has not been publicly identified and remains at large.

The shooting marks the third mass shooting to take place in California in the past week; the first was a shooting at a high school in Santa Clarita and the second, a family shooting in San Diego. It is the 370th mass shooting in the US in 2019.

This story is still developing; here is what we know — and what we don’t — so far:

What we know

  • Just before 8 pm local time, an unknown gunman entered a football watch party through the backyard of a Fresno home. “Everyone was watching football this evening when unknown suspects approached the residence, snuck into the backyard and opened fire,” Lt. Bill Dooley, a spokesman for the Fresno Police Department said.
  • Three men were shot and killed on the scene; one man succumbed to his injuries after being taken to the hospital. Police have described all four as Asian men between the ages of 25 and 35.
  • 10 people were shot in total. Of the wounded, Dooley said, “Some are listed in critical condition; some are listed in critical but stable condition.”
  • Police are investigating the shooting by canvassing the neighborhood and searching for security footage. They have not released a description of the shooter.

What we don’t know

  • The identity of the shooter
  • The identities of the victims
  • The type of weapon used in the attack
  • The shooter’s motive
