A 12-year-old’s birthday party in Louisiana last week turned into a nightmare as gunfire broke out that left nine teens injured, authorities in St. John the Baptist Parish said Monday.

The Saturday night shooting in LaPlace, about 30 miles west of New Orleans, happened at 8:37 p.m. when officers responding “learned multiple people were shot when verbal confrontations during a child’s birthday party led to gunfire,” according to a statement. There were no fatalities.

A 17-year-old male was shot in the arm; a 16-year-old male was grazed in the ribs; a 15-year-old male’s ankle was grazed; another 15-year-old male was shot in the foot; a 14-year-old male got hit in the leg, a 13-year-old boy was shot in the leg, and a 12-year-old was shot in both legs, police said in a statement.

Further, a 16-year-old male shot in the stomach and a 14-year-old male with a gunshot wound to the head remained hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

Neighbor Rashad Bolden, who lives two doors down, told WUPL-TV that the party was taking place in a garage.
