ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say a 17-year-old girl was shot in the lower back during a disturbance at a house party Sunday morning.

Police said they received several 911 calls just after midnight reporting gunshots heard outside a home.

Police say their investigation revealed that a group of people who were not invited tried to crash the house party. When they weren’t allowed inside, one of them pulled out a handgun and began firing into the home through the front window. Witnesses say the suspect left in a red passenger car.

The 17-year-old was inside the home when she was struck by a bullet. She was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
