About 35 people had gathered in a backyard in Fresno, California last night to watch a football game when they were attacked. From the Fresno Bee . . .
“What we do know is that this was a gathering, a family and friend gathering in the backyard,” Lt. Bill Dooley, a spokesman for the Fresno Police Department, told reporters. “Everyone was watching football this evening when unknown suspects approached the residence, snuck into the backyard and opened fire.”
Ten people were hit and four have died.

The neighborhood was reportedly the sight of previous violence.
Choua Vang said Sunday’s shooting wasn’t the first one in the neighborhood. His next door neighbor’s house was shot at last week.
“It makes me feel unsafe to be outside when the sun’s down,” he said.
Vang often works on his car in his driveway, but now he said he’s nervous to do that and even suspicious of joggers in the neighborhood. He said he worries about his family members who work graveyard shifts and come home late at night.
“We’re thinking about moving out of the neighborhood,” he said. “We don’t know how many more shootings there will be.”
No arrests have been made yet.
