Five teens wounded after gunman opens fire into Bakersfield apartment

Five teenagers were shot and wounded when someone fired into a Bakersfield apartment early Monday, authorities said.

The victims — three 17-year-olds and two 18-year-olds — were hospitalized with moderate injuries, said Bakersfield Police Sgt. Nathan McCauley.

All were in stable condition as of 11:30 a.m., McCauley said.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting with multiple victims around 12:30 a.m. at the apartment complex just north of downtown Bakersfield.

An unidentified shooter fired multiple rounds into one unit, striking five people, McCauley said.

The relationship between the victims was not immediately clear, and it wasn’t known if they all lived in the apartment together.

Police didn’t release a description of the shooter, who remains at large.
