N.Y. Teen Girl Paralyzed In Shooting at 'Drama Free' Queens Party

August 29, 2011  | 

A 15-year-old girl was shot in the back at a Queens, N.Y., house party early Saturday that had been advertised as "Drama Free" on Facebook and Twitter.

About 100 people were packed into a backyard at the home, when a gunman climbed over a rear fence and opened fire on the crowd, striking 11 young people around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police said six males ages 15 to 23, and five women, ages 15 to 21, were shot, with bullets hitting them in their arms, legs, hands and feet. Host Allan Dawkins had advertised the party as "Free Food, Free Drinks, Live Video, photos, Drama Free."

Not that I'm condoning any of this, and I think it's very tragic that the poor girl is paralyzed...has anything been found out about why this incident happened? Perhaps the crowd made too much noise, which is pretty much very likely, with a hundred or more people at the party...were the police ever called for too much noise? Also, with all the minors attending the party, where "Free Drinks" were available, were any arrests made for "contributing to minors"? Or is 15 the legal age to drink in New York?
