PITTSBURG (KRON) — Five men were injured in a shooting at a house party Saturday in Pittsburg following a fight between two groups, police said Sunday.

Officers responded just before 11:00 p.m. to reports of a shooting in the 100 block of Madoline St., where a birthday party was taking place.


A fight had broken out after the suspect and group he came with were asked to leave the party, police said.

Others at the party were able to detain the suspect before police arrived, authorities said.

The five victims were taken to a hospital and are in stable condition, according to police.

Officers arrested a 23-year-old Oakley man. He was taken to the county jail on suspicion of several felonies, including assault with a deadly weapon.
