APOPKA, Fla. (AP) ' Authorities say nine people have been wounded amid a shooting at a birthday party in a central Florida home after a fight erupted.
The Orange County sheriff's office says the fight broke out late Saturday among teens attending the party near Apopka and one person pulled out a handgun and fired shots.
Sheriff's Capt. Denise Demps-Rollins gave that account to the Orlando Sentinel and said police afterward stopped an SUV at a gas station carrying several teenagers.
