AGUANGA, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say seven people were fatally shot in Southern California at an illegal marijuana growing operation.

The crime scene was discovered around 12:30 a.m. Monday when Riverside County sheriff's deputies responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon at a residence in the community of Aguanga about 50 miles north of San Diego.

Deputies found a woman suffering from gunshot wounds and paramedics took her to a hospital, where she died.

Six more people were then found dead. A search did not locate any suspects.

Authorities say they do not believe that there is a threat to the general public.
