When police arrived, officers found 19-year-old Nora Osman, who had been shot. She was hospitalized, but was pronounced dead.
The three others who were shot, ages 18, 21, and 22, were all hospitalized and released.
"All of the victims were shot outside of the house, and the suspects are believed to have fled in a vehicle; however, there were numerous vehicles leaving at the time," Sergeant Crump says in an e-mail. "It also appears that shots may have been fired from someone on foot as well."
Police haven't released any descriptions of the suspects or their vehicles at this point.
