Texas authorities are searching for armed robbers who crashed a prom afterparty in Lancaster, Texas, shooting one teenager and assaulting another.
Police say that the two or three aggravated robbery suspects attended a party meant for Red Oak High School students after the party invitation went viral social media.
Around 3:15 A.M. on May 8 more than 500 people were at the event when Dallas County sheriff’s deputies responded to gunshots.
The teenager that was shot was released from the hospital.
Authorities believe two or three suspects showed up at the after-party uninvited and proceeded to rob some people. A teenager was then shot and another person was physically assaulted.
Investigators also believe the suspects blended into the crowd as people began to leave the party. Authorities continue to search for the possible suspects.
Although there were some adult chaperones according to authorities, one neighbor who didn’t want to be identified said there should have been more supervision at the party.
