7 Wounded, 1 Dead After Shooting At Brooklyn House Party

BROOKLYN, NY (CBSNewYork) — A semi-automatic handgun was just one of the weapons police believe was involved in a wild shooting spree in East New York Brooklyn that left seven people injured and one man dead.

Police say the shooting began at a crowded house party on Wyona Street around 3:15 a.m. Saturday and then spilled out into the street.

A 20-year-old man, identified by police as Donzell Rogers, was shot in the chest and died of his injuries.

According to police, most of the partygoers were in their teens or early 20s. The party was advertised on Facebook and on flyers around the neighborhood as “Freaky Friday” and had a $5 cover charge.

Police believe it all started when two people who were already in some sort of fight bumped into each other. That’s when the two began to argue and then the shooting broke out.  

When police arrived on scene, there were several people lying injured in the street, and even more lying shot inside the house.

Police say two guns have been found: one tossed in the grass, and the other on a person who was stopped by officers. 

This entire incident appalling to New York City Councilman Charles Barron.

“Most of the police say they haven’t seen this in their professional careers,” he said. “We are pleading to our communities, stop the violence, put down the guns. Men and women settle their conflicts with their minds, not with weapons and violence. That’s the message we want to get out.”

Saturday morning, police were still collecting evidence at the scene with reports of bullet holes and shell casings all over the house, yard and down the block.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says police believe the shooting was gang related. Three people are currently being questioned and charges are pending. Police say one of them was arrested as he fled the scene with a loaded semi-automatic gun.

Cops still don’t know who the shooters were or how many. It’s also unclear how many people were at the party. The party’s organizers were trying to raise money for rent but it’s uncertain if they knew the people who opened fire.

At least nine people were injured and were taken to area hospitals. Of those victims, a 20-year-old man, was killed. Police said five victims were in stable condition while three were treated and released.

    Do any of you people understand that the welfare act and feminist movement was made to destabilize the black family? Remember if you have a child and say you have no man you get a free apartment ,cash,and $400 a month foodstamps. This program was built by JOHN D ROCKAFELLA. THERE WAS NO BLACK ON BLACK CRIME IN THE EARLY 70,S child iilegitimacy was 9%. When you enslave a people and have concerted OVERT,OVERT,OVERT,OPERATIONS TO KEEP THEM DIVIDED THIS IS THE RESULT. whitemen destroyed the blackfamily.AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DEAD BEAT DAD IF YOU KNOW THE FATHER HE MUST PAY CHILDSUPPORT WATCH MAURY. THESE WOMEN ARE HOES.

    1. DOUG DUTESMAN says:

      You are so pathetic. The govement tries to hel\p black women with children and you call it enslvement?? What about the black man who runs away and doesnt live up to his responsibilty of supporting his children.
      Blacks who immigrate here lcome over here and work hard and stay together as a family and cant understand the lazy black man who lives here and runs from his family. People like you are a disgrace toi your race. Blacks from Jamaca and Hati come over here and steal your jobs cause you too dam lazy and blane the whitre man for your laziness. The black immigrants are laughing in your face.

    WOW, SOME OF YOU GUYS ARE SO PATHETIC WITH YOUR RACIST COMMENTS. DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELVES WHEN YOU PUT OTHERS DOWN? THE SAD PART IS, AT THE END OF THE DAY YOU WILL ALL STILL BE THE SAME PATHETIC PEOPLE. GOD HELP YOU ALL.

    1. Stephen Holland says:

      Get the GUNS off the streets
      I don’t know where you live and I bet the average 12 year old can pay drugs where you like

      Man are your Crazy?

      I have a bright Idea, how about passing a LAW making carrying a GUN illegal

      Wow I have another Idea how making it illegal to shoot people

      Hey I am starting to feel smarter Let make illegal to buy a GUN

      what is the meaning of insanity?

  8. Leroy Johnson says:

    Can we all agree that its sad to see a 20 year old gunned down because he decided to go to a party. All that other nonsense about single, welfare, mothers and race needs to be toned down and just all as humans feel sorry for someone that will never amount to anything because he was killed.

    1. americancabbie says:

      No – we can’t agree on this. Only sorry more weren’t killed.

    W NEED TO HAVE ALL WELFARE AND POOR PEOPLE TO HAVE ABORTION. THEY CAN’T RAISE THEIR KIDS, ALL OF THEM ARE OBESE OR SMOKERS, THEY RUIN OTHER PEOPLE LIVES, COST TAXPAYERS TOO MUCH MONEY

    1. Richie says:

      Amen…well said.Im sick and tired of paying for another mans kid becuse the man is not responsible and abondonce his family. These guys are too busy trrying to look like gangsta rappers…moveing their arms vertically and singing garbage rap while their sons daughters and wives are living under welfare.
      Comon guys if you make a child be a man and own up to it and support them.

      1. Career First says:

        Every one of them should be able to finish high school and go on to a Technical school to become productive members of society. Why? Because people now live to be 120 years old in some countires. So, everyone should be concentrating on getting their careers established BEFORE having kids. The women really have to understand this concept first, because they’re the ones who open their legs. Men have to have a job and career before they can stick it between yo legs, understand?!

    2. EVELYN says:

      THE NICE THING IS THAT THE PEOPLE U ARE CRITICIZING WILL STILL RAISE THEIR CHILDREN TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY; WHETHER THAT IS TO YOUR LIKING OR NOT. WHAT’S EVEN BETTER IS THEY WILL BE ADULT MEMBERS OF SOCIETY WORKING IN NURSING HOMES, SCHOOLS ETC., AND YOUR BRILLIANT, WONDERFUL, HARDWORKING DEDICATED CHILDREN GET TO LIVE AMONG THEM.

    What ever happen when men used fists to fight. You know real Men who can fight a good fight without using guns. Guns is a cowards way of getting back at someone. Hell, even a child can use a gun, and these men think it’s a manly thing to do, Well think again, It’s a cowardly way to do things.

    always blaming someone else for their action!

    black men and guns are a lethal combination. Crazy short tempered, you disrespect me tude.

      REALLY?????? IS THAT HOW THE WEST WAS WON??????? BIG DUMMY!!

  13. Rhoda Miller says:

    Police should be able to stop and frisk at will, and anyone carrying an illegal weapon should be severely punished – double punishment for a semi-automatic. You can’t stop every car coming to NY to search for illegal guns, though tips would help as would surveillance of known gun shops in Virginia, etc. The country is controlled by gun nuts who think everyone should carry AK-47s. But making it difficult to carry an illegal weapon would help.

    1. LarryG says:

      You need some education. Thre country isn’t controlled by gun nuts, it’s controlled by dummies like you. We’re talking blacks here, clown. Go back to your idiotic habits and stop tormenting people with your ignorance.

      1. Leroy Johnson says:

        Police in NYC can stop and frisk at will, the defiantly do it all the time

    2. Mike says:

      Thats why they are called “criminals”, because they don’t follow the laws. I am not a “gun nut”, but I do legally carry a concealed firearm and am highly trained on its use.

    3. Audrey Mccoy says:

      That’s what is happening although there are other crimes perpertrated but is under reported. It just helps reinforce the sterotyping that black people love to go around killing each other.

    4. Stephen Holland says:

      Rhonda I bet you never seen a AK-47 and don’t know what AK-47 mean

      The sound of a firearm going off scare you.
      That just too bad and there is nothing you can do about it

  14. Alex says:

    Why all of you are talking about laws, police, Mayor and other outside power? Why did you not mention about their families? Why most of them live with single mothers with several children from different, frequently unknown men? Why these teenagers are out of their homes in the morning? Where did they get money for guns and partying? Usually, nobody at these families works in generations. Do not call me racist. I did not specify any race but everybody knows what I’m talking about. Yes, Mayor Giuliani has crashed this swamp over the city. However, all so called civil rights activists used to call him dictator and racist. But NYC became civilized under Giuliani, and only Giuliani since he used to act as prosecutor regardless of races and positions.
    Family irresponsibility (if you can call a cell comprised of a single welfare mother with several children and sometimes a grandmother a family) and racial liberalism will hit everybody including welfare recipients themselves. And stop calling them as children from underprivileged family. I have no privileges. Just I’ve been working for a whole my life. So, I can pay all my bills, and not by food stamps.They can get same privilege: go to work and pay your bills.
    Do not declare about police. Everybody is personally responsible for his/her actions. Being black does not make any difference. Learn, get education, get work, etc. Of course, if you study and work hard, you have no time for day long parties and shooting. Shooting comes when people are not busy and looking what to do in boredom.

  15. John Marin says:

    If Charles Darwin were around now he would see this incident as another expression of nature weeding out the strong from the weak. Humans evolved from apes some 3.5 million years ago and it seems the law of the jungle is just one exasperating breath away. Incidents such as this will be around until, to be bibllical, end of days is finally realized.

  16. George says:

    We need a new police department that can do the job.

    1. TyroneJackson says:

      You are an absolute moron. No more need be said.

    2. jay says:

      hey george wake up What could of the police have done about this? i suppose we could of frisked all the partygoers but you would of called that racial profiling. How bout maybe have some fathers around that might help.
      or maybe certain people just cant control themselves from acting like animals

  17. rupert hewitt says:

    It all starts from the home of rap/.welfare mothers.

  18. Steven says:

    Listen if parents talk to there kids more, and the City stop making guns, we all know who is bring the guns to New York and everywhere else. People kill people for dumb things, there are more guns and drugs in the world then it is PEOPLE. everybody owns a Gun. I enjoy seeing them just go to Jail, Not Dead, The Police Needs to Step up there Game. East New York is Good for Real Estate.

  19. Stephen Holland says:

    What laws do you think you can pass to STOP the shooting in the street?
    And what do you think the Police should do?

    The Police do what they do best, file a report
    What I would love the hear on the radio and TV are the 911 calls

    I think they are funny
    Please send Police [someone} with a gun to save our Life, that funny

  20. kevin says:

    Exactly…

  21. The Facts says:

    Time to beef up our depleted police force. Consideration should be given to bringing back the street crimes units and the tactical patrol force. Get tough and get results. Stop the whining and excuse making.

  22. Marina Ios says:

    stupid exaggerated so-called “child protective laws”, teachers and parents have their hands tied, and the result is : some out-of – control, dangerous so-called “kids” , behaving like this
    from my point of view, they could kill each other as long as they please, unfortunatelly , sometimes, innocent people who just happen to pass by get killed also
    change the laws, give parents enough and real rights to raise their kids, without social workers checking on some imaginary abuse cases, give teachers the right to fully punish students when and if they deserve it.
    can someone explain, please, how come, that in the old times, when parents were able to implement some rules when we were growing up, there was not so much teen violence??? and , please, dont blame it on TV or video games, is not the case.

    1. nyc says:

      I agree with you. Just tooo many new laws that invade the privacy of bringing up your own children. The end of the middle class, social networking, a violent society, ongoing wars and rotton economy for the middle class and below don’t help ! How do you project a calm, peacefull future ?

  23. Brooklyn redident says:

    Born and raised in Brooklyn and this news is nothing new. In the past though communities and with mayor Giuliani there was a concerted effort to rid neighborhoods of these gang bang violence. Now with Bloomberg the attitude is let these idiots destroy themselves. Why should anyone who lives in better areas care if fools go to these parties and kill themselves white people are happy these gangstas stay in their turf and live like animal, you can’t blame them the cops or the mayor.

  24. nyc says:

    Another day, more shootins with Illegal guns that just continue to flow into New York ! We are living in dangerous times. When stores close and more banks open, less jobs ,no more middle class, prices keep going up, violence everywhere and no site of things getting better in the future. Maybe, it’s a master plan of the rich to have lots of Illegal guns available to street people and they will just keep killing each other off ? This has become the city of the rich !

    1. 2gruesome2b says:

      as a practical matter, abortion is a far more effective in decreasing the population, so the method is there to reduce gun crime. i suspect if stabbings were reported, they would exceed the death rate for illegal guns. why do we have a sullivan law, which is enforced as often as ice forms in a blast furnace, and shed crocodile tears over crime with guns wielded by thugs. to be brutally honest, we need a really good war, on the magnitude of korea or vietnam, to soak up the excess population by means of a noble death for one’s country.

  26. Barry Levine says:

    Charles Barron is an excellent speaker, has beautiful diction, and this nice white boy LOVES to hear him speak. If only his politics were different I would vote for him as Mayor. He should be a prime example for the Black youth of how to speak and act but unfortunately Al takes first place and Al should be the last guy that any kid would want to emulate.

    1. JasonS says:

      Charles Barron is an ex Black Panther. The Black Panthers basically gave birth to black gang culture back in the early 70’s – read David Horowitz’s account of the story in “Radical Son” – he was one of the white Marxists who helped arm them. Barron should never be allowed in office. He is the poster child for everything that is wrong about black leadership. He is just another old-skool black racist who thinks “white racism” is the cause of all the black community’s woes and who has spent his career coming to the defense of some of the worst in the black community. Oh and if you’re going to falsely claim to be white in order to make your point, here’s a tip. White people generally don’t refer to themselves as “nice white boys,” although black people who are pretending to be white on the internet do.

      1. TyroneJackson says:

        100% correct on all counts Jason. Good work. Hopefully people realize what you say is not fiction, unlike some of their views.

  27. JJENY says:

    You guys should show your face when you make comments like this. It makes you more American. Right now you all just look like George Bush when he had a shoe thrown at him. COWARDS.

  28. bob white says:

    Go do something with your lives… and leave the racist comments out of the post for respect geesh

  29. karlson says:

    Heard this on the radio and I don’t have to read the article. When I hear shooting at a party, I know none of the guns were licensed and the A-holes carrying them have illegal weapons. Just a bunch of stupid gang bangers with no regard for the law and amoral.

    Take a gun to a party and somebody bumps into you and you start shooting? These are morons.

  30. Mike says:

    You mix welfare culture people with guns, and things like this happen. My only hope is that the man that was killed was another thug.

    1. EVELYN says:

      WHERE WAS WELFARE DURING THE WILD WEST? FUNNY HOW ONLY CAUCAUSIAN AMERICANS CAN BE VIOLENT, BECUS OF COURSE THEY ALL HAVE JOBS.LOL
