One person, 20 old, was killed and eight others were wounded in a shooting late Friday night involving a large crowd that had gathered for a party at a shopping plaza at the 3600 block of E. Highland Avenue in San Bernardino, California. One of the victims was as young as 10-years-old and another was 12-years-old.The shooting then continued across the street. The incident prompted a massive response from the San Bernardino Police Department. Additional assistance was requested from the sheriff’s department to help control the “crowds’ aggressive behavior.
Police are calling that party at THA Blu Flame Lounge an “unpermitted special event,” and say some type of argument occurred between at least two individuals inside the event. Police say not all the victims were intentionally targeted by the gunman. Officers detained two individuals while attempting to secure the scene initially, one of which was arrested for being in possession of a loaded stolen firearm, and the other for outstanding warrants. The motive for the shooting remained under investigation.
