A late-night party ended in a mass shooting that left one person dead and eight others injured in San Bernardino Friday.

The shooting was reported in the 3600 block of East Highland Avenue about 11:53 p.m., San Bernardino Police Department Sgt. Thomas said.

A large crowd had apparently been attending a party at one of the businesses located in the Highland Square shopping center when gunfire erupted.

Arriving officers found one person outside the business was pronounced dead at the scene, Thomas said.

Family members told KTLA the victim was a 20-year-old man named Alan who was attending a party at Tha Blue Flame lounge in the shopping center.

A witness who did not want to be identified said she saw a car drive up and someone open fire. She said shots were also fired across the street at the Mobil gas station.

Police have not identified the victim or confirmed the details about the shooting.

“We just heard gunshots and a lot of kids running,” a witness said. “Most of the kids were under 18 years.”

Video showed crime scene tape blocking the parking lots of both locations Saturday morning.

Police later confirmed that eight additional victims had been shot in the incident, many of which self-transported to local hospitals.

The wounded victims were being treated at Loma Linda University Medical Center and Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.

The eight wounded victims appeared to have non-life-threatening injuries, Thomas said.

Video following the incident showed a crowd at the scene being aggressive with law enforcement as they tried to investigate the shooting.

Police have not said if they are searching for a single shooter or multiple shooters.

No motive for the shooting has been released.
