(CNN) — A shooting at a house party near Houston left two high school students dead and 19 other people injured, the Harris County sheriff said Sunday afternoon.
The shooting occurred late Saturday night in the Cypress area, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
It started at a birthday party in a two-story home, where more than 100 people were gathered, police said.
Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia described it as “a birthday party gone wild.”
Most of the 19 injured suffered gunshot wounds. One person suffered a broken leg trying to flee from the gunfire, Garcia said.
