A gunfight broke out at a house party in Queens on August 5 between police, partiers, and a group of gunmen who arrived and started blasting randomly into the festivities.

Soon after the partiers pulled out their weapons and the crossfire began, causing the police to join in the fray and return fire in a fracas that left 4 people injured and four others arrested.
