Police say 400 people, most members of the Xiong Clan of Hmong, had gathered to celebrate a clan reunion and the upcoming Hmong New Year.
Two people were hit in the torso; three others received gunshot wounds to the arms and legs.

Officers recovered a .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun and dark clothing they say the suspects threw from their car as they fled.
Detectives tell KRMG the shootings resulted from a dispute within the Hmong community. Both suspects and all five victims are ethnic Hmong.
