WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Police in the North Carolina city of Wilmington say that seven people have been shot and three of them killed at a house party.
Wilmington police say officers responded shortly after midnight and discovered that a gunfight had erupted.
A 21-year-old man and a 22-year-old man were killed. A 16-year-old girl also died. Four other people who ranged in age from 18 to 21 were wounded.
