FRESNO, Calif. -- Four people were killed and six others were wounded in a shooting at a home in Fresno Sunday evening, authorities said.

The shooting was reported around 8 p.m. at the home on East Lamona Avenue in southeast Fresno, about 10 minutes from downtown, according to Fresno Police Department.

Deputy Chief Michael Reid with FPD said the gunman sneaked into a backyard where approximately 35 people were gathered to watch a football game and started firing into the crowd. Investigators said it was possible there were multiple shooters.

Three men between the ages of 25 and 30 were pronounced dead at the scene, Reid said. A fourth man, who was around the same age, was transported to a hospital in critical condition, where he later died.

Six people were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said they did not have anyone in custody and did not release a suspected motive for the shooting. They also did not have a detailed description of the suspected shooter.

Investigators were going door to door looking for surveillance video that could reveal more information about what led up to the attack.
