4 dead, 6 injured in California football party shooting

WASHINGTON. KAZINFORM - Four people were shot and killed at a backyard football watch party in the U.S. state of California on Sunday, the third such example of gun violence the state has seen in recent days and amid a fractious national debate over gun laws.

In all, ten people were shot at the party in Fresno, a city of some half a million people in central California, when suspected armed gunmen sneaked into the backyard and fired on the crowd of revelers, police told reporters.

Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley said the shooting took place at about 6 p.m. on the southeast side of the city, where people had gathered to watch a football game in the backyard, according to local media reports.

Police said they discovered three people dead in the backyard, while a fourth victim died after being taken to hospital. Six others are expected to survive their injuries and are recovering under medical care, police told reporters.
