BRONX, NEW YORK (BRONX NEWS)- An all-night house party ended with gunfire and the wounding of two men in Bedford Park.
Officers from the 52nd Precinct were called to the three-family home at 2836 Valentine Avenue at the corner of East 198 Street, at 6 a.m. on August 22.
Officials say a 23-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and the buttocks and a 36-year-old male was shot in the stomach during a dispute at a house party inside the 3-story home.
Police sources say the two unidentified victims were uncooperative with investigators and police have made no arrests at this time, but continue to investigate. Cops are currently combing through surveillance video from surrounding buildings and businesses along East 198 Street.
Officials could not say if those wounded lived at the home or were guests. Officers were initially looking for one black male armed with a handgun, who fled from the scene on foot.
