Police were searching Sunday night for gunmen who shot and killed one teenager and injured two others at a Bronx house party.
Police say a group of people tried to enter a party around 2 a.m. Sunday at 1495 Morris Avenue in Claremont and became angry when they were not let in.
According to neighbors, a young woman was throwing a party for her 20th birthday in her apartment. They say she did not want any trouble, so she actually had someone frisk people who entered for weapons.
Police confirmed the gunmen were denied entry to the party, and that once the fight broke out on the sidewalk in front of the building, Nadaire Walters, 17, was shot in the chest.
A neighbor, Modene Dawkins, could see the aftermath from her sixth floor window in the building.
"I heard the shooting, it woke me up from my sleep. I heard about six shots. It wasn't from a pistol, those were some pretty loud shots," said Dawkins. "Oh my God, there was yelling, screaming. Whoever got shot, the girl, she fell, and they all trampled her trying to get back into the building."
After the shooting, Walters was brought back into the lobby, which was littered with liquor bottles. She was then taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital and pronounced dead.
"This is dangerous. My god, I feel sad for the family of the girl," said Dawkins.
Authorities say two boys, aged 17 and 18, were shot in the leg and taken to Lincoln Hospital.
