BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Police in Connecticut are investigating what they say was an unusual outburst of violence in Bridgeport when 13 people were shot and wounded at a house party.

Eleven men and two women were shot and taken to hospitals.

Harris says none of the injuries is considered life-threatening.

He says the suspects shot at people both inside and outside the home. Police are investigating whether the suspects were partygoers who “got upset.”
