Teen party gunfire scene: Many spent casings, no injuries

Posted: Updated:

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Weekend gunfire at an Alabama teenager's birthday party resulted in no injuries - but police say 50 spent casings were recovered.

Prattville Police Chief Mark Thompson tells the Montgomery Advertiser investigators were uncertain whether all of the casings were from Saturday night's shooting, which happened at a community center rented for a 16-year-old's party.

Still, Thompson says multiple rounds were fired and people there are lucky nobody was hurt.

The newspaper says it was the second shooting incident at the privately run North Highland Memorial Center in the last several weeks.

Thompson said police recovered spent .22 cal., 9 mm and .40 cal. casings and an empty handgun magazine. Thompson said he and Prattville's mayor planned to talk with the center's officials about improving security at the center.
