Kern County Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt tells KNX-AM radio that homeowners allowed their daughter to host the party. She promoted it on social media and about 150 people arrived — many uninvited.
The parents broke up the party and the visitors — mainly 15- to 18-year-olds — streamed into the front yard and street.
Pruitt says that’s when three people came up the street and opened fire on the crowd. At least one person reportedly fired back.READ MORE: CHP Pursuit Ends With Crash, AC Transit Bus Into West Oakland Home
