Police: 5 teens injured in shooting at Bridgeport Sweet 16 party

Bridgeport police say five teens were injured in a shooting at a Sweet 16 party Saturday night.



It happened at Circolo Sportivo on Park Avenue around 10:30 p.m.



Police say a fight moved from inside to outside, where four boys and one girl were shot. They say about 300 teens were packed inside the building.



They say at least two shooters fired in the back of the party venue and then near the street.



Four victims were taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center and the other to Bridgeport Hospital.



News 12 is told the victims were shot in their arms and legs.



Officials say four of the five victims were treated for their injuries and released from the hospital. They say the other remains in serious condition but is expected to recover.



The host of the party says a lot of people who were not invited showed up to the party, which may have led to the fight.

Police say they are reviewing surveillance video that captured the crime.



Anyone with information is asked to call Bridgeport police.
