4 people shot at birthday party

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Four juveniles were injured in a shooting at a birthday party in St. Petersburg Saturday night.

St. Petersburg Police officers responded to the 3600 block of 3rd Avenue South around 10:30 p.m. in reference to shots fired. They didn't find any victims but found several casings. Investigators believe two people in a car outside the birthday party were shooting a gun into the air and then someone at the birthday party fired shots into the car.

Two people in the car were injured, one of them critically.

Two bystanders at the party were also caught in the cross-fire and were injured, but their injuries appear to be  non-life threatening.

Police say two of the victims showed up at Bayfront Hospital and the two others showed up at All Children's hospital. No word yet on how old the victims are, but police say they are juveniles.

No arrests have been made.
