BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old woman has died after being shot at birthday party in Baton Rouge.

Multiple news outlets report deputies were called to a large party where multiple shots were fired early Sunday morning. Authorities say Donlisha Patterson was shot and later died at the hospital.

Neighbors say nearly 100 people had gathered at a house in the Merrydale neighborhood and several vehicles full of teens and young adults were zooming up and down the streets. Witnesses say someone in a black car drove by the house where the party was taking place around 2 a.m. and fired shots into the crowd outside.

The shooting remains under investigation. It is unclear if police have any suspects.
