Authorities suspect the shooting is apparently a drug-related issue, possibly due to an apparent territorial dispute between gangs, for drug sales in the Central Valley.

At the scene, police found shells from a high-powered rifle, mostly likely an AK-47, among others.

The injured, two women and six men, and were taken to the San Juan de Dios hospital nearby in private vehicles.
