An overnight drive-by shooting in Santa Rosa left one person dead and three others injured, police confirmed Monday morning.

The shooting occurred just after midnight Monday in the 1500 block of Beechwood Drive, police said. The fatal victim was identified only as a 35-year-old man.

Dozens of people were participating in an illegal fireworks show when a silver Honda Accord drove by with an unknown number of occupants, and someone opened fire, striking three victims, police said. As the vehicle fled, another exchange of gunfire occurred, during which a female victim was shot.

The Honda then crashed into a nearby parked vehicle, prompting the suspects to flee on foot, police said.

Two of the wounded victims, a 29-year-old woman and a 17-year-old girl, were in critical condition, and a 16-year-old boy suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said. No suspects had been arrested or identified as of Monday morning.

The investigation is ongoing, and the Santa Rosa Police Department encourages anyone who has information about the shooting to contact SRPD through its online tip line.
