1 Dead, 6 Injured At Child's Birthday Party Shooting

A group of gunmen walked up and opened fire on a child's birthday party in Sacramento's Peregrine Park Saturday evening, the Sacramento Bee reports:

A large blue Cookie Monster figure was on one of the picnic tables. An inflatable playhouse had collapsed. Clothing and shoes were scattered about.

One man in his 20s died at the scene; six others, including a 7-year-old, sustained injuries police say are non-life-threatening.

The shooters fled the scene in a getaway car, and police suspect that the shooting was gang-related and believe that the man who died was a gang member.
