A suspect fired several shots from a handgun after fighting erupted among teenagers at a birthday party at a central Florida home, leaving nine people wounded, authorities said Sunday.

After the shooting, a suspect left the house party where some 30 teenagers had gathered near Apopka, authorities said, adding a gray SUV carrying that person was stopped afterward and the person was undergoing questioning.

Orange County Sheriff’s Cpl. Susan Soto, speaking with The Associated Press, said she had no further information on the person and whether charges were expected. She added of the suspect: “He was identified by other witnesses and it is believed he was the only shooter.”

Soto said authorities were called minutes before 11 p.m. Saturday to the home and found six people with gunshot wounds who had to be taken to hospitals. She said three others went on their own to seek medical treatment for injuries.
