2 shot after man opens fire at backyard party

Posted: Updated:

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - Two women have been hospitalized with gunshot wounds after a man opened fire at a party in Massachusetts.

Brockton Deputy Fire Chief Mark Baker says a 19-year-old woman suffered two gunshot wounds in her legs and an 18-year-old woman was shot in her upper left thigh. He did not provide information on their condition.

Brockton police and fire found the women after responding to a call around 11 p.m. Saturday of shots being fired.

Police say a man walked into the backyard where the party was being held, fired one round into the air and then fired at the group of people.

The Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/2sNMwha ) police were called to the same location earlier in the night for complaints of loud music.

The shooting is still under investigation.
