At least 6 teens shot at an’instant house party’ organized on Snapchat
- The shooting victims -- a 17-year-old female, three 18-year-old males and two 19-year-old males -- are expected to recover from their injuries, Houston police spokesman Victor Senties said Sunday.
- "It was just a random group of people receiving an invite" on the messaging app, a detective said.
- Police believe about 30 to 100 people were at the late-night party when three people started firing shots into the street or inside the home, Senties said.
An impromptu house party devolved into chaos when a verbal dispute led to the shootings of at least six teenagers in Houston.
The party was an “instant house party” organized on Snapchat, a detective told CNN affiliate KHOU.
Senties told CNN the melee started after a verbal fight between a few partygoers in the east Houston house early Saturday morning.
Three teens were shot at the house, and three teens fleeing the scene were also shot, Senties said.
CNN has reached out the Snapchat for comment.
