On Saturday night, at least seven people were wounded after a shooter opened fire at a group of people that had gathered at a toddler's birthday party.

According to the police, the incident took place at the 6200 block of Maxwell Dr., near the Camp Springs and Morningside areas of Prince George's County.

THE VICTIMS WERE ALL YOUNG ADULTS

The identity of the shooter, who remains at large, is yet a mystery but the proper authorities are investigating the case and hope to catch the criminal as soon as possible.

A FIGHT LED TO THE SHOOTING

Police Chief Stawisnki confirmed that 12 people were at the party and that out of the seven victims, four suffered minor injuries and three suffered serious injuries.

It is believed that everyone is expected to survive and, fortunately, the two-year-old was not among the victims. According to the police, a fight broke out before the bullets started flying.

SHOOTING AT A BABY SHOWER

This was yet another example of gun violence, one among many that happen every day across America. Earlier this year, in April, another shooting took place at a baby shower in Chicago.

A family from South Seeley, in the Englewood neighborhood, was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child when two men walked up to the baby shower and opened fire over the party-goers.

The shooters then fled on foot, leaving behind at least 6 victims, including an eight-year-old boy, who was hit in the back and chest, and a ten-year-old girl, who was shot on her chin.
