Last night family and friends were gathered together watching football at a party when all hell broke loose
10 people were shot, 6 were wounded and 4 were killed.
Just before 8 p.m. on the 5300 block of East Lamona Avenue gunmen snuck into the backyard party and opened fire. Dozens of people were gathered around watching football as the bullets came flying.
“What we do know is that this was a gathering, a family and friend gathering in the backyard. Everyone was watching football this evening when unknown suspects approached the residence, snuck into the backyard and opened fire.”
– Lt. Bill Dooley
Police said all the victims were ‘Asian males’ between the ages of 25-35 years old.
Three passed away at the scene and the fourth passed at Community Regional Medical Center. The other victims were brought into CRMC and are expected to survive.
Police where going door-to-door hoping some neighbors may have private surveillance cameras set up in their homes.
Our thoughts and prayers here at IMU Media go out to the family and friends of the victims.
