Two people are dead and five people are injured after a family barbecue in Texas was targeted by a drive-by shooting on Saturday evening, San Antonio Police stated.

Around 10 pm while the family was holding a barbeque in the front of the house, a vehicle "drove by and unloaded about 20, 30 rounds," San Antonio Police Department Chief William McManus told reporters about an hour after the incident.

The victims range from age 20 to mid-40s, McManus said. Two men were killed, while two women and three other men were injured.

The chief would not speculate about a possible motive but said a "deadly" drive-by occurred at the house in May. 

"We have a couple of theories, but I am not going to go into that," he explained to reporters.
