1 killed, 3 injured after shooting at house party in Merced County

MERCED COUNTY, California (KFSN) – A house party in the North Valley took a tragic turn after shots were fired, hitting four people.

It happened at a house in Cowden and Bright in the Beachwood area of ​​Merced County.

Deputies found two people with gunshot wounds. They were rushed to the hospital. Two others who had been shot showed up at the hospital alone.

A man who was shot dead died at the hospital. Two of the victims were minors.

Detectives believe the party went out of control and there may have been uninvited guests, which led to someone opening fire.

Deputies say there were many people who left the party before they arrived – they are working to locate them.

Later Sunday morning, around 10:15, a shot was fired at Atwater.

Shots on Winton Way near Fir Avenue sent a man to the hospital by ambulance. A second victim of the shooting appeared alone in the hospital.

“It’s difficult. This is a big road, people are worried about their safety,” said Atwater Police Lt. William Novetzke. “Right now everything is preliminary. We are feeling for the families of these incidents and we are currently investigating. Once we learn more, we will inform the public.”

It is not clear what led to the shooting.

Anyone with information about the shootings should call a detective.
