Feud erupts at Dallas-area birthday party, 1 dead

DALLAS (AP) - At least one person was shot dead and seven others were hurt when a fight erupted at a traditional birthday party for a 15-year-old girl near Dallas.

Ellis County Sheriff's Lt. R.D. White says Sunday the argument at the quinceanera - a traditional party for a girl turning 15 - rapidly turned violent, according to The Dallas Morning News report.

By the time police arrived, four people had been shot, two had been stabbed and two beaten. At least one person died of a gunshot wound, and one of the other victims is 11.

White says the names and medical conditions of those involved are not yet being released. However, he says the injuries have made it difficult for police to figure out what happened at the family gathering.
