The Latest on a shooting at a Southern California apartment complex (all times local):

11:10 a.m.

Police in California say eight people were shot and wounded at an apartment complex during a dice game.

San Bernardino police spokeswoman Sadie Albers said officers arrived at a chaotic scene Sunday night and initially thought 10 people had been wounded. The victims were seven adults and a 17-year-old.

Albers said the 17-year-old and one adult were critically wounded.

The six other victims had wounds that were not life-threatening and were expected to survive.

Albers said the victims are not cooperating with investigators, so little is known about the shooting. She said evidence at the scene shows that multiple firearms were used.

Police have said there is gang activity in the area, but it's too early in the investigation to attribute the shooting to a gang rivalry.


8:45 a.m.

Police in Southern California say 10 people were shot and wounded after a group playing a game at an apartment complex exchanged gunfire.

San Bernardino police Capt. Rich Lawhead said Monday three of the wounded people are in critical condition after the shootout Sunday night.

Lawhead tells the San Bernardino Sun the shooting started when someone opened fire on a group of people playing a game, possibly dice. He says some of those at the game fired back.

Lawhead says people used handguns and rifles but that no firearms had been recovered and no arrests had been made.

He says there is gang activity in the area, but that it is too early in the investigation to attribute the shooting to a gang rivalry.
