California: A family executed by shooting, including a 6 month old baby

Six people from the same family, including a 6-month-old baby and his 17-year-old mother, were shot dead on Monday January 16 in the town of Goshen, California (USA). A gang-related billing is suspected.

A bloodbath. Six family members were shot dead in the city of Goshen, California, on Monday. Among the victims are a 6-month-old baby and his 17-year-old mother. Two suspects are wanted.

Law enforcement said it wasn’t a random act of violence, it was the “family.” The county sheriff described a “horrific massacre” at the scene. Two bodies lay on the street in front of the house. A third was on the porch of the house while three other victims lay shot, American media described.

The sheriff said the 6-month-old baby and her young mother were shot in the head.

He argued that gangs believed to be linked to drug trafficking were behind the killings. The home targeted by the attack had been the subject of a search in a narcotics case a week earlier. “It wasn’t random violence,” the sheriff concluded.
