CONYERS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say an 18-year-old was shot and killed and two other teenagers were injured after a house party.

Conyers Police Lt. Jackie Dunn said there was up to 75 people at the Conyers home late Saturday. They say people paid $3 each to get in.

Neighbors called police complaining of the loud noise around 9 p.m. and officers left the area after they thought they broke up the party. But authorities say a fight broke out and shots were fired around midnight.

Authorities say an 18-year-old was shot and later died from his injuries. They say a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old were also injured in the gunfire.

Police say they are looking for the shooters.

Wonder if the residential property was posted "NO Guns Allowed." Otherwise permit carriers could exercise their own discretion.
