GREENWOOD, S.C. — A South Carolina teenager is dead and four others are recovering after they were gunned down at a birthday party.

Greenwood police say a 15-year-old died from a gunshot wound to the chest, while the other four suffered injuries that didn’t appear life-threatening Saturday night. Police aren’t identifying the teen, or even saying whether the victim was a boy or girl.

Police say a large crowd gathered for a birthday party when several shots were fired by an unknown number of people.

The shooting happened not far from the Greenwood Detention Center. Police have not said what prompted the shooting.

Too little information,

too soon. Get back to us with some facts, please!

What did the Detention Center have to do with it. Is the writer suggesting something or just giving the reader a geographical reference?

Not the best example of journalism.
