A group of Salinas residents are lucky to be alive following multiple homicide attempts Friday night at a home in the 1100 block of Cortez.  The Salinas Police Department says a group of about a dozen people were in front of the Salinas home when they were approached by an Hispanic male in his 20′s with a semi-automatic weapon.  The gun misfired twice as he attempted to open fire on the crowd.  Authorities say the suspect then chased the group inside the home and had them cornered in a back room when he attempted to open fire on them again and again had misfires.   The suspect fled in a white Honda car.  No other information has been released.
