VALLEJO -- One person was killed and as many as seven others injured in a mass shooting in Vallejo late Saturday night, police said today.

According to a preliminary investigation, a group of young adults from South San Francisco were in four cars heading to Vallejo for a party, Vallejo police said.

At about 11 p.m., one of the vehicles hit a curb and got a flat tire near the 200 block of Princeton Avenue, police said.

As all four cars pulled over and several individuals were changing the tire, a white SUV with tinted windows drove by and opened fire on the group, police said.

There appeared to be one gunman inside the vehicle.

Three other victims from the same incident arrived at area hospitals on their own, police said.
