Police Investigate Shooting At Sports Complex’s Dance Party
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a western New York business was filled beyond capacity while hosting a weekend dance party that ended when gunfire wounded a New York City woman.
Authorities say more than 500 people crowded into the Frank Young Sports Complex in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park for Saturday night's event hosted by an outside promoter.
The gunfire sent people scrambling for the exits, and police say accidents occurred while some drivers were trying to leave the parking lot. Officers from Orchard Park and neighboring town responded.
Police say the business has a capacity of 300. The owner says the building has a higher capacity and only about 300 people were at the party.
