Police officials say that five of the victims are now being treated at Community Regional Medical Center in Downtown Fresno and one victim is being treated at Saint Agnes Medical Center in northeast Fresno. Six others are expected to survive and are recovering at the hospital, police said.

It was at least the second fatal gun attack Sunday in southeastern Fresno, the Bee reported.

Police are still searching for information and evidence to help them find the shooter and learn the suspect's motives.

In Fresno, California, there was a large group of family and friends gathered Sunday to watch football when a gunman suddenly walked up and started shooting at them.

"It's very likely that it was targeted - we just don't know why", he said. "We're not releasing the total number yet".

Dooley said victims were rushed to Community Regional Medical Center in conditions ranging from "critical" to "critical but stable". As of Sunday night, police had no description of a suspect and were not sure whether there had been more than one shooter.

All of the victims are Asian males aged 25-30, police said. He also said there was nothing to suggest the shooting was gang related, but said it is something his department will explore as they investigate. He died the next day.

"This was a mass casualty shooting". A fourth son wounded in the shooting was on life support on Sunday, family members said.
