Teenager gunned down at post-prom party attended by hundreds: police

Three teenagers in Des Moines, Iowa, were injured after a shooting at a post-prom party early Sunday morning, police said.

The incident comes after a scuffle broke out at the party, which was attended by at least 200 people, when a group of uninvited people arrived, according to local news channel WHO13. A 17-year-old woman and two 18-year-old men suffered gunshot wounds. They were taken to hospital and are expected to survive, WHO13 reported. Police are investigating the shooting but have not yet made any arrests.

In a letter to parents, Des Moines Roosevelt High School principal Steven Schappaugh reiterated that “we believe none of the injuries are life-threatening.”

“Unfortunately, there was a shooting last night at a prom after-party that injured three Roosevelt students,” he said, according to WHO13, which published the letter on its website.

In another incident last month, several people were shot dead outside a Waffle House in Atlanta, Georgia. After a fight broke out outside the restaurant, someone opened fire, hitting five teenagers. All of the victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were in stable condition. However, news channel WGCL reported that two of the victims allegedly ambushed a valet vehicle at gunpoint to take themselves to a nearby hospital.

At least three people were injured in a spring break shooting on a beach in Texas in March. At the time, law enforcement officials believed the shooting happened after a brawl broke out on the beach. A 30-year-old man was in critical condition after the incident, while two teenagers sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Also in March, four teenagers were shot dead outside of a birthday party in Texas. At the time, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said an altercation broke out in a parking lot when “several suspects began shooting at each other.” The sheriff stated that after the shooting, a 17-year-old was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. At least one of the other three injured was taken to hospital in critical condition.
