On arrival, cops located two shooting victims dead, and after further search in the home, they found four other gunshot victims, according to ABC30. One of the six victims was still alive when authorities reached the spot and were taken to the hospital. However, the victim was declared dead a short time later, reports a local news outlet. Among the dead shooting victims include a 16-year-old mother and a six-month-old baby. The infant, Nycholas Nolan Parraz, was found cradled in the arms of his mother, Alissa Parraz, outside the house. Both were shot in the head as the teen mom attempted to flee with her infant son. Notably, a search warrant for drugs was conducted at the same Goshen home just a week ago.

The investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made so far. At the time, there are at least two suspects, say authorities, according to the local media. The informers first thought the incident to be led by an active shooter. The investigator does not dismiss the possibility of a gang connection relating to the shootings as they do not consider it a random act.

"We can tell you that we believe we have two suspects at this point. We also believe this was not a random act of violence, we believe this was a targeted family," said Sheriff Boudreaux.

"We believe there are gang associations involved at this scene, as well as potential narcotics investigations," he further said, reports The Sun.

Revealing about the search warrant for drugs at the home a week ago, the sheriff said other family members have survived the tragic shootings. He said, "We do have a family that was escorted from the scene, we do have survivors. The reason for them surviving this horrific massacre, for lack of a better term, we just don't have all that information this morning."
