An investigation is underway in Riverside County where seven people were shot dead in a home being used as an illegal marijuana grow.

Authorities say deputies responded to an assault-with-a-deadly weapon call at a residence in an unincorporated area near Temecula. 

They found one woman still alive but she died after she was rushed to a hospital.

One thousand pounds of marijuana and several hundred marijuana plants were found in home. Investigators say the incident appears to be isolated and that there's no threat to the general public.
