One man is in critical condition after he was shot several times at a Fourth of July party near Porterville.

The shots were fired around midnight in the backyard of a home off South Halsey Street. The man's friends apparently took him to the hospital in Porterville, but he needed special treatment. He was flown to a Fresno hospital where he remains Friday morning.

The Tulare County Sheriff's Office have not released the victim's name. Investigators are still interviewing witnesses to try and get a description of the gunman.
