Two Mississippi teens were killed during a shooting at a house party Sunday morning, which left four others wounded. In a press release by the Bay St. Louis Police Department, the victims were 18 and 16 years old.
The statement says that the department responded to a shooting around 12:34 am at a house party in the town just 30 miles west of Biloxi. When Police arrived they found multiple victims, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, suffering from gunshot wounds.
Two of the six victims were transported to the hospital in private vehicles and four “were transported via ambulance and Life Flight to trauma center hospitals in New Orleans and Slidell, LA.” The report listed three victims in serious condition, one in critical condition, and two who succumbed to their injuries while being treated at the University Medical Center in New Orleans, LA.
