California police say six people were shot and wounded at a “big” party despite the US “stay at home” order.

Filming took place Friday night at an apartment complex in Bakersfield, said the local sheriff’s office.

The victims – four women, a man and a girl – were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made, but four men, seen fleeing in a car, are suspected of having carried out the attack.

An investigation is underway, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s Department.

Extensive travel restrictions have been in place since last month in California, one of the worst coronavirus epidemics in America. As of April 11, the state had reported 21,794 cases and 651 deaths.

On the orders of Governor Gavin Newsom, residents can only leave their homes to buy groceries and medicine, walk a dog or exercise.

Non-essential businesses were also forced to close – others, including grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations, may remain open.
