The Merced County Sheriff's Department is investigating a weekend triple murder.
The victims are apparently gang members in their teens to early 20s.
They were at a holiday party at a home for migrant workers near Westside Boulevard and Highway 99 late Saturday night.
A rival gang showed up and started shooting, hitting five people.
Three victims died and two others are hospitalized.
Detectives are still working on a description of the suspects.
