Teenage mother and 10-month-old baby among six killed in California shooting

In an attack that left six people in central California dead, a teenage mother and her 10-month old baby were both fatally shot in their heads “assassination-style”

At 3.38 AM on Monday, authorities received a call about multiple shots fired at a Goshen residence. This town is 170 miles from downtown Los Angeles.

Police say that a gunman shot multiple shots into Alissa Parraz, 17, and then killed Nycholas, her child, while they ran from the attacker.

The four other victims, all of whom are related, ranged in age from 19 to 72, including Ms Parazz’s grandmother, who was killed as she slept.


Police are investigating whether the family was targeted by a gang/drug cartel and are currently on the lookout for two suspects.

Mike Boudreaux, Tulare County Sheriff, stated that Ms. Parrazz attempted to flee but was stopped by a gunman who fired multiple shots at her.

He stated that it was clear that the family was a target.

He stated that none of it was accidental.

Home is linked to gangs & drugs

He said that the gunmen had no reason to kill the mother and child.

Authorities stated that they were looking for two suspects, and offered $10,000 for any information leading to their arrest.

Although Mr Boudreaux claimed that the home was linked to gangs, drugs, he said on Tuesday that he had retracted his earlier comments that violence was likely to be a cartel hit and that investigators are still investigating that possibility.

Although the sheriff mentioned gang activity at the house in the past, he said that not all who were shot were drug dealers or gang members.

Samuel Pina, Ms Parazz’s grandfather, stated: “I can’t wrap my mind around what kind of monster might do this.”

He claimed that the teenager and her baby lived with her father’s family. His uncle, her father’s cousin, her grandmother, and her great-grandmother all died.

Three survivors of attack

The innocent victims include the teenager, her grandmother, and the baby.

Rosa Parraz, Eladio Parraz Jr., Jennifer Analla and Marcos Parraz were the other victims.

Police will interview three people who survived the attack.

Mr Boudreaux stated that Mr Parazz Jr., a convicted felon was not the “initially targeted target”, and declined to provide further details.

Goshen, a community in central California with approximately 3,000 people, is located in the agricultural San Joaquin Valley.
