Police say a young mother was shot to death while holding her infant daughter when bullets ripped through the door of an Oakland home during a family celebration.
Authorities said 22-year-old Isabel Flores died instantly Saturday night, but her 8-month-old daughter in her arms was not injured.
A 16-year-old Modesto boy and a 34-year-old Oakland man were also wounded when a gunman apparently opened fire from a car outside the packed home. No arrests have been made.
Oakland police Sgt. Caesar Basa said the party had been peaceful
before the shooting, which he said took place in a part of the city known for gang activity.
Flores' husband and 5-year-old daughter were also at the party. Officers arriving on the scene found cake, tamales and chicken still out on tables amid the chaos of crying, screaming people.
