Gonzalez previously said during a press conference that the victims, all of whom appeared to be young men, were shot while filming a music video in a parking lot.
“All of a sudden, basically, they were ambushed, we believe, by individuals in cars and/or on foot that fired shots,” he said.
Gonzalez said he did not know of a motive and that the incident took place in a residential neighborhood.
