6 people, including a baby, were killed in a ‘cartel-style execution,’ California sheriff’s office says

"At least six people, including a mother and her 6-month-old baby, are dead after an “early morning massacre” Monday that authorities in Goshen, California, said may be related to cartel activity.

Deputies who responded to reports of gunfire after 3:30 a.m. Monday found six victims, including two who were in the street and one who was in the doorway of the home where the gunfire erupted, Sheriff Mike Boudreaux told reporters at the scene.

The mother, who was 17, and the child were both shot in the head, he said. Among the other victims was at least one man who was taken to the hospital but later pronounced dead.

The person who reported the shooting “thought an active shooter was in the area because of the amount of shots being heard,” Tulare County Sheriff’s Office said in a new release.

“We do have family that has been escorted from the scene, we do have survivors,” Boudreaux said, saying investigators had yet to determine how they survived what he said was a “horrific massacre.”

The attack does not appear to be a random act of violence but may be linked to gang activity, the sheriff’s office said, noting it comes a week after deputies executed a narcotics search warrant at the home.

While rival street gangs frequently engage in acts of violence in the area, the belief among investigators is that Monday’s massacre bore characteristics associated with a drug cartel, with a heightened level of brutality and sophistication.

While investigators cannot confirm the shooters were from a cartel, the sheriff thinks it appears to be a “cartel-style execution,” Tulare County sheriff’s spokesperson Ashley Schwarm told CNN on Monday.

Drug cartels have notoriously engaged in deadly violence, including the deployment of hit squads against perceived enemies and members of law enforcement that threaten their drug trafficking efforts.

Detectives are looking for at least two suspects, the sheriff’s office said."

Lets keep the border wide open, folks....

When is the Biden admin going to finally acknowledge they are failing… not just at the border but everywhere. Seattle has businesses closing everywhere, even Starbucks. Why? Cause the city is run by Dems who hate cops and love crime. The border allows criminals to pass back and forth like there is no border. The Dems are worried about electric cars?!? No gas stoves?! Wtf?!?
Let’s distract from Biden’s classified info being mishandled while his crackhead son could access that info. And people still defend Biden. Those people are nuts, no doubt. I can’t believe what is going on in this country… disgraceful

Wonder how many of these dangerous criminals are here illegally? Don't worry - the Biden DoJ has law enforcement trained on the REAL danger to America - parents upset at school boards filling their kids with bulls***.

Rather than look at this as what it is - a failure by Democrat politicians to secure the border and keep criminals locked up, it will be looked as a yet another case for "gun control."

Gavin Newsom: "This is Fine. Just trying to keep up with Lori Lightfood's Huge Record of crimes."

The president of Mexico thanked Biden for keeping the border open. Maybe Biden is being paid off by them too.
