By  | 

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Police in central California say 10 people were shot at a backyard party, and four them died.

Fresno police say the shooting took place about 6 p.m. Sunday on the city’s southeast side.

Fresno Police Deputy Chief Michael Reid tells the Fresno Bee and the KSEE/KGPE TV stations that 10 people were shot, and three people were found dead in the backyard. A fourth victim died at the hospital.

Police say six others are expected to survive and are recovering at the hospital.

It was at least the second fatal gun attack Sunday in southeast Fresno. A man in his 20s was shot to death early Sunday at a home in another part of the city. Police have not said whether the incidents could be connected.
