SHOOTOUT LANDS THREE IN HOSPITAL

Three partygoers were reportedly caught in crossfire between a passing vehicle and others going to the same party.
Early Saturday morning, Anderson Williams, 18, of Hospital Ground, Jafari Samuel, 17, of Berg's Homes and Kamba Jackson, 19, also of Berg's Homes, were walking toward a party in Hidden Valley where Jam Band was playing when they were shot.
Williams was shot twice in the shoulder, once in the right arm and once in the right thigh, according to a report from Police Chief Jose Garcia.
Samuel took bullets in the right wrist, right shoulder and right thigh and was shot twice in the head. He is reported to be in stable condition.
Jackson was shot in the right index finger.
All three were taken to the Roy L. Schneider Hospital.
The passing car, a white Ford Escort, was later found abandoned in Peterborg. It was identified as a rental vehicle from Budget Rent-a-Car that had been reported stolen.
Police are encouraging the many witnesses who were at the party to come forward with information about the incident.
Calls can be made to the Investigations Bureau at 774-4050 or to 911.
