Three young adults are dead after shots were fired at a house party in Glendale early Saturday morning.

Glendale Police Officer Tracey Breeden told ABC15 that they were called out to the home near 67th and Missouri avenues around 3:30 a.m. 

At least 20 people as young as 15 years old were at the chaotic scene of the shooting. Police say two people were deceased in the front yard and another person was deceased inside the home.

Two others who were injured were taken to the hospital. According to a family member, one of the injured victims was involved in another deadly party shooting that took place a couple weeks ago.

According to the investigation, there was some type of altercation that broke out and a group of men were asked to leave due to bad behavior. Five of them got into a white, older-model sedan and took off, opening fire as they left. 

A neighbor says he heard at least six shots fired before seeing the white run vehicle speeding down the street.

Police have yet to locate the vehicle or the five men who are considered suspects. If you have any information, please contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
