Shooting crime

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (UPI) — 13 people have been wounded after a shooting at a house party early Sunday in Bridgeport, Conn., police said.

At least two shooters fired at party goers in a backyard through the backyard hedges, police said. The multiple victims were all rushed to local hospitals with one victim in critical condition.

The wounded include 11 men and two women, police said. Most had non-life threatening injuries to the lower body, but one man suffered a gunshot wound to the face and a woman is in critical condition with a gunshot to the face.

“There was so much noise, music, and yelling, everybody singing,” said next door neighbor Hector Torres, who said he heard five to seven shots.

Police are investigating, but a motive is not known. Police said regular patrols will be established in the area.
