1 person killed, 7 others injured in graduation shooting

The people were attending the party at 70th and Buist avenues when the incident occurred at around 10pm local time.

The victims included three boys, ages 15, 16, 17, a 16-year-old girl, a 21-year-old man, and a 24-year-old man.

"These are the things that absolutely drive us insane", he said. Police say about 60 people were attending the party in an isolated area at the end of a road when the shots rang out.

The remaining victims, all in their twenties, suffered wounds to different parts of their bodies, one of which succumbed to injuries soon after being shot, reported CNN.

Ross said police have increased patrols to combat the problem, but the answer to violence in the city needs to come from not just the police.

"That's something that's even more troubling - that you could do that realising the carnage you could cause", he went on.
