SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Bottles still remain in the yard where a house party is believed to have taken place Saturday night- a party that ended in gunfire and sent two people to the hospital.

Police say the shooting happened just before midnight at a home in the 6100 block of West Canal Boulevard. Neighbor Louis Reliford says when he heard the shots he stayed inside, because "bullets don't have a name.”

When multiple shots rang out, 22-year-old Chelsea O'Neal was hit in the leg and a 14-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet on his head.

"It was a lot of shots, probably about 10 or 15, " Reliford said.

Reliford says the sound was distinct, because he is familiar with the sound of gunfire. He's lived in the Sunset Acres neighborhood for 20 years and says this type of activity isn't ordinary.

"Yeah, I've heard it before, but never over here,” he added. "I think the violence should stop everywhere.”

The woman who held the party wouldn't go on camera, but says that while she doesn't know the two who were shot, she is glad that they're okay. The house party was being held to celebrate her birthday, but she says the chaos began before she even got to cut the cake.

Reliford says that stray bullets rarely have a name.

“It doesn't matter if they intended for someone or they are stray. The one that didn't have anything to do with it could end up getting hit,” he said.

The neighborhood is taking the day to recover while police are actively searching for the person who pulled the trigger.

O' Neal was taken to University Health in Shreveport. The juvenile victim was taken to Willis-Knighton Medical Center North. Both were treated for minor injuries and are expected to fully recover.

Police are searching for the person responsible for the shooting. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit lockemup.org. The incident remains under investigation.
