The party allegedly took place at an Airbnb rental in Golden Glades.
The New York Daily News notes police believe the shooting was the result of an “altercation that began outside the house.”
They think someone in the altercation “pulled out a gun and opened fire.”
There is a reward “of up to $5,000” for information resulting in an arrest.
