13 people shot

75

A shooting at a crowded house party has left 13 people wounded, and police in Connecticut are investigating what they said is an unusual outburst of violence in the state’s largest city.

Bridgeport police believe two shooters opened fire on about 100 party-goers from behind some hedges surrounding the home’s backyard. It happened around 1:30 am (local time)on Sunday.

Responding officers discovered what authorities called a chaotic scene.

The party was so crowded that some people believed the gunshots were fireworks, Captain Brian Fitzgerald said at a news conference on Sunday afternoon.
