    (AP) DUQUESNE, Pa. — Western Pennsylvania authorities say a shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday party has left one person dead and seven others wounded.

    Thanks! I can't find an article with much more info right now. From the one linked by passionflower:

    In addition to the shooting, officials say a huge fight involving a few dozen people spilled out onto the street and police from several neighborhoods were called in to help quell it.

    From the first link:

    Ebony Hawkins, who threw the party for her daughter, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that an unknown gunman arrived shortly before midnight and opened fire. Authorities said they found several guns in the residence after the shooting.

    Maybe he's right - maybe the troublemakers need to go.

    added in the update on WPXI.com
    Ebony Hawkins, who owns the house where the shooting took place, said she was also hurt in the incident.

    "This was supposed to be a sweet 16 for my daughter and friends to enjoy, not to kill or for anyone to get hurt," said Hawkins. "I didn't see the shooter. I just heard shots. I got trampled and that is how my foot got broke."

    Police said they recovered several guns around the house after the shooting. Investigators said they believe Henderson-Bracey was the intended target

    Hawkins also says her daughter is not doing well. It was her 16th birthday and the person killed was her friend.


    I bet all those kids are hurting . . . wish all families could escape violence.
