Police rushed to the crime scene after reports of the murder around 3:30 a.m. after multiple shots were fired in the California neighborhood of Goshen, a small farming town about 220 miles southeast of San Francisco.
Deputies arrived seven minutes later and reported finding two dead.
It was later learned that the desperate 911 call came from a surviving victim of the shooting, who had managed to live after hiding in the house.
After discovering the gruesome scene, officers found a third victim in the doorway of the property.
Continuous searches led to them finding even more victims, both inside and outside the family home.
Sheriff Boudreaux said the surviving victim later died in hospital, despite the efforts of deputies who immediately began CPR at the scene.
The young mother who was killed was reportedly trying to flee the horrific carnage with her 10-month-old baby boy when one of the gunmen stood over them and “shot bullets into their heads,” California police have revealed.
