The Fresno County Sheriff's office is still gathering clues on possible suspects and what led to the deaths of William Harris and Kayla DeBorde.

The evidence left behind from Friday night's deadly shooting isn't enough for Fresno County investigators.

After talking to partygoers at the scene, they're hoping some of them-can do more to find who's responsible. "We know there were a lot of people there shooting pics and vid and we want those images to our detectives so they can narrow down any suspects in this case," Tony Botti with the Fresno County Sheriff's office said.

Detectives are still gathering clues on possible suspects and what led to the deaths of William Harris and Kayla DeBorde.

They say because the birthday party was heavily promoted on social media.. It's more challenging for them to find leads in the case. "The trouble is you invite people from rival groups, they get into arguments and things escalate like we had there Friday," Botti explained. "Shots rang out and unfortunately two people end up getting killed."

Although it's been years since DeBorde and Harris attended Washington Union High School, a team of counselors are spending time on campus providing support for students and staff.

"One nice thing about Washington Union High School and the Easton community," principal Derek Cruz said. "We band together and take care of each other and look out for each other, I think that's one of the strengths of this community."

As investigators wait for more evidence, the school will do what they can to help those who need it. "This was really tragic," Cruz said. "But there are people pulling for those folks impacted by the tragedy."

The sheriff's office is asking the public, especially anyone who attended the party, to provide information. You can contact the Fresno County Sheriff's office at (559) 600-8206 or the dispatch center at (559) 600-3111.
