(Reuters) – Gunmen killed a man and wounded six people including a seven-year-old child when they opened fire on a toddler’s birthday party in California, in what police said on Sunday might have been a gang-related shooting.
The police said California gang and homicide detectives were investigating the incident, in which several men armed with guns approached the gathering in Sacramento’s Peregrine Park on Saturday afternoon and opened fire.
The dead man was in his 20s. The wounded are all expected to survive, the police said, adding they suspected a possible gang link. They did not release the names of the victims.
