2 People shot at house party 4 blocks from campus


Two people were shot early Saturday morning at a party on Hazel Street in the south campus neighborhood, said Chico Police Lieutenant Jeff Durkin.

First responders transported both victims to a hospital where they are in stable condition. Police do not have any suspect information and the investigation is ongoing. 

Police responded to a nearby call of a firearm being brandished. Shortly after there were  reports of gunshots. Police arrived on the scene “probably within five seconds,” said Durkin. 

Chico State sophomore Grace Brasil attended the party during the shooting. 

“We heard like five gunshots and we ducked down next to the DJ stand,” Brasil said. “My friend saw a guy get shot in the shoulder.” 

Brasil said the shots were fired from Sixth Street into the backyard of the party.
