STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — Rival gangs in Stamford shot up a birthday party for a 15-year-old girl, spraying bullets in all directions and sending three men to a hospital.
The Advocate of Stamford reports (http://bit.ly/ZgBcjs ) that the gangs traded gunfire on Saturday. Three men were admitted to Stamford Hospital with non-life threatening wounds.
Stray bullets hit two nearby houses and parked cars. One bullet came within inches of a woman sitting in her bed in a house adjacent to the party.
Renee Deschaine, who lives in a neighboring second-floor apartment, said she was forced to dive out of bed to take cover. She said there were so many shots in succession, she thought it was fireworks.
No arrests have been made.
