A 17-year-old mother, her six-month-old baby and an elderly woman shot dead in her sleep are among six people who were callously murdered in a gang-related attack on a California home last night. 

Two gunmen targeted the house in Goshen, in central California, at 3.30am on Monday. They fired so many rounds that neighbors called 911 reporting an active shooter. 

The two gunmen then fled, leaving their victims in the street and inside the home.

An elderly woman was murdered in her sleep, according to ABC. It’s unclear where the teenage mother and her baby were killed. 

Police have not yet released the identities of any of the victims, nor have they released a description of the suspects. 

Two people survived by hiding inside the house. 

A week ago, a search warrant for drugs was carried out at the property.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting was ‘gang’ and ‘drugs’ related. 

‘Detectives believe there are at least two suspects and this is not a random act of violence. 

‘It appears this family was targeted and there are gang associations involved, as well as potential drug investigations. 

‘A week ago, TCSO Detectives conducted a narcotics search warrant at the victims’ home,’ a spokesman said. 

Police continue to process the crime scene. An update is expected from officials today
