Just after midnight Saturday, officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Kidder St after reports of shots fired. Once they arrived, police said they discovered a gunfight had erupted inside the home during a house party.

Police have not released the victims' names because authorities said they are still working to notify the victims' family members.

Irving said that the scene remains an active investigation and that police will release more information Saturday morning.
