OCEANSIDE, Calif. -- A man was killed and two other victims remain in serious condition after being shot at a baptismal party Saturday night, according to the Oceanside Police Department.

The shooting took place on the 3100 block of Jacqueline Lane. When gunshots erupted around 8 p.m. Saturday, they sent an estimated 100 attendees scrambling.

Neighbors told FOX 5 that the party had started early -- around noon -- and that things appeared to get out of control in the early evening.

Three adult males were shot and taken to Tri-City Medical Center by family members shortly after the attack.

Police say a 29-year-old male who sustained multiple gunshot wounds ultimately died from his injuries.

A 46-year-old male who sustained multiple bullet wounds was listed in critical condition, and a 26-year-old male with a single gunshot wound was listed in serious condition.

Police have not provided any information on a suspect.
