Goshen, California: Law enforcement across the state of California are still searching for the shooters responsible for the deaths of six people at about 3:30 am Monday, January 16, 2023. A $10,000 reward is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest.
Tulare County Sheriff Mike Bourdreaux described the scene as a "cartel-style execution" saying that the shooters "these people were clearly shot in the head and they were also shot in places that the shooter would know that a quick death would occur."
Among those dead were a teen mother and her 10-month-old infant.
"It is very clear that this family was a target," Bourdreaux stated. "There are gang associations involved as well as drug investigations involved."
Law enforcement went on to say that not everyone in the home was a member of a gang and not everyone was a drug dealer.
"I'm not saying this is a cartel," Boudreaux clarified, "but I am not eliminating that possibility."
"Going in and massacring an entire family goes above and beyond," he stated. "Which is why I continue to focus back on high-level gang-style execution or cartel-style execution because this is not normal."
Three individuals managed to survive the shooting. Two of the survivors were hiding in a trailer on the property and one was hiding within the home where the shooting took place.
The victims have been identified as 72-year-old Rosa Parraz, 52-year-old Eladio Parraz Jr., 50-year-old Jennifer Analla, 19-year-old Marcos Parraz, 16-year-old Elyssa Parraz and 10-month-old Nycholas Parraz.
