13 Wounded In Bridgeport House Party Shooting

(BRIDGEPORT,Conn./CBS Connecticut & AP)   – 13 people suffered gunshot wounds  early Sunday morning  in Bridgeport.  Officers responded to 19 Plymouth Street shortly before 1:30am and found multiple victims.

10 of the victims were taken to Bridgeport Hospital and  three went to St.Vincent’s Medical Center.  11 suffered non-life threatening wounds to their lower extremities.  A female was  shot in the face and  is listed in critical condition.  One male sustained a non-life threatening  gunshot wound to his face.  By Sunday afternoon, only five people remained hospitalized.

Police say it appears the shots were fired by at least 2 shooters through hedges from the backyard of 31/33 Plymouth Street, opening fire on more than 100 people attending a large house party.

Police say the people who threw the party had gone to the police department at one point to try to apply for a permit to sell alcohol, which was denied.

Police say they believe they charged for alcohol anyway, and could face criminal charges.

A motive for the shooting remains unclear. Police are investigating whether the suspects were partygoers.
