Police were frantically called to a toddler’s birthday party. Instead of cake and candles, they found a bloody scene. It appeared that two families’ feud turned deadly at a one-year-old’s birthday party near Corpus Christi, Texas.
The shooting left four of the men attending the party dead in Taft, Texas. Another man was shot, and his injuries were serious. He was airlifted to a medical center in Corpus Christi, about 12 miles away. At this time, his condition is not known. The names of the men who were killed and the injured man have not been released at this time, according to KOAA, an NBC affiliate station.
Sgt. Nathan Brandley works for the Texas Department of Public Safety and is the Sheriff’s Department spokesperson. He said that the Texas Rangers were still looking for two suspects. He believed the men were involved in the shooting. The authorities have been processing warrants for them.
Brandley noted that this is “an ongoing investigation.” He also asked the residents to call the DPS with any information about the shooting or the men at large, according to Fox News:
