MANTECA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a gunman opened fire during a large house party in central California, injuring seven people.

The California Highway Patrol said officers were conducting a traffic stop shortly after midnight in Manteca when they heard several gunshots and saw people running for their lives.

Officers who went to the house learned that a man armed with a semi-automatic weapon showed up to the party and began shooting into the crowd, said police.

Two of the injured were critically hurt; five others were treated and released from the hospital, according to police.

Officials say no arrests have been made. The suspect’s identity and the motive for the attack have not been released.
