A burst of gunfire at an 18-year-old girl's birthday party Saturday
night left two dead, another two critically injured and dozens hurt in a
chaotic scene where people jumped from second-floor windows to escape
the shooting at a suburban Houston home.
More than 100 people, mostly 17- to 19-year-olds, had gathered at the home in Cypress, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said. Partygoer Shaniqua Brown told The Associated Press it "was not rowdy at all," and many people were dancing when they heard the shots, which police said were fired between 11:30 p.m. and midnight.
