Police: 1 Ki!!ed, 5 Wounded In Shooting Outside California Party!

A 17-year-old girl was ki!!ed and five others injured in a drive-by shooting following a large house party in California early Saturday, police said.

The mass shooting occurred in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Chico, about 90 miles north of Sacramento, Chico Police Lt. Terry Tupper told ABC News. Police responded to the scene around 3:30 a.m. and found several victims struck by gunfire, police said.

Tupper said that a gunman had opened fire from a vehicle into a group of people in the parking lot.

“The actual shooting was not random,” Tupper said, adding that it’s unclear whether any of the six shooting victims were specifically targeted.

All six victims had recently left a house party in the apartment complex that police had cleared, Tupper said.

The surviving victims all suffered non-life-threatening injuries and included 18-, 19-, 20- and 21-year-old men and a 17-year-old female, police said.

Police believe the shooting to be an “isolated incident” and there is no threat to the community, Chico Police Chief Billy Aldridge said during a press briefing Saturday.

According to Tupper, investigators are “aggressively pursuing some substantial leads” in their search for a shooter.

Chico police arrived at the party about 30 minutes before the shooting due to allegations of someone flashing a gun there. Responding cops discovered a person possessing a firearm and arrested them, according to Aldridge.

A tweet from Newtown Action Alliance’s official Twitter account:

That person matched the description of a suspect from a different incident that happened several hours prior at another home party in Chico. According to reports, the chief stated that a gun discharged multiple rounds in the area around 12:30 in the morning.

After someone was asked to leave the party, a brawl is reported to have broken out. According to Aldridge, one person was allegedly struck in the head with a gun and another had reportedly been beaten with a glass bottle. According to police, both victims were treated at a local hospital for non-life-threatening wounds.

The person later detained at the second party Chico police were called to was charged with firearm possession and careless discharge, according to Aldridge.
