Teen Dead In Birthday Party Shoot Out

( 4UMF NEWS ) Teen Dead In Birthday Party Shoot Out:
What was supposed to be a celebration turned to tragedy after a young girl’s birthday party ended with several teens being shot.
Authorities reported that 17 year-old Shakir Williams was killed and four teen others were hurt after gunfire erupted at a 15-year-old girl’s birthday party in New Jersey.
It’s not yet clear what prompted the shooting at the party or whether the shooter was a party goer or an uninvited guest.
According to teen witnesses, the gruesome end to the celebrations was completely unexpected.
‘It was crazy. Like, we were all having fun and just that one person wanted to start something and it just happened,’ a young female party goer told NBC 10 Philadelphia.
Eye witnesses told the news station that shooter had been biding their time at the party for a while before they suddenly opened up fire.
‘I was sitting on the couch and I just saw him walking and he just started shooting into the crowd. Everybody started running he was walking back to the door and was still shooting,’ another teen told NBC.
After the shots were fired the reported 100 party goers spilled out into the street.
‘Kids all around, cops all around and screaming and yelling … just total chaos,’ Hector Jordan, a neighbor, told reporters.
Mercer County First Assistant Prosecutor Angelo Onofri described the scene to NJ.com similarly, saying, ‘It was chaos. The officers had to clear everyone, they did not know if the shooter was or was not in their midst.’
At this time the shooter still remains at large and the teens in attendance told authorities they did not recognize the gunman, NBC reported.
Onofri said that once police were able to get through the crowds into the house they found 17 year-old Williams shot multiple times, apparently in the living room, and pronounced him dead at the scene a short time later.
William’s family members told NBC that he was a ‘good kid and was not known to get into fights.’
Authorities are still working to determine whether Williams was the shooter’s intended target.
Onofri said a 17 year-old boy remained hospitalized in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery for wounds to the torso, arms, leg and groin.
Two other teens, ages 17 and 18, were shot in the leg, while a fourth victim was hit in the calf. All three were treated at a hospital and released.
Authorities say dozens of people, mostly teens and young adults attended the party, at which there was underage drinking taking place.
According to NJ.com the birthday girl’s 23 year-old brother was charging a $3 cover for boys and $2 cover for girls at the door. The young girl’s mother and stepfather were also home during the party.
