Seven men injured in Antioch shooting Saturday night; shooter unidentified

Seven men who were shot at a house in Antioch in Northern California this past weekend are expected to survive their injuries, authorities said.

Five of the men were discovered by police officers responding to a call around 11:50 p.m. Saturday in the 5500 block of Cedar Point Way. The men were transported to local hospitals for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, according to the Antioch Police Department. 

While officers were at the scene of the shooting, two more men arrived at area hospitals seeking treatment for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. It was later determined that they were victims of the same incident but had left the location before police arrived. 

Officials said not all the men lived at the house and were having a "get together" when the shooting occurred. 

An investigation into the identity of the shooter remained ongoing Monday.
