HOUSTON - A house party in the US city of Houston ended in gunfire overnight, leaving one person dead and at least three others wounded, local media reported Saturday.

The trouble started around midnight during a large house party at a home in southwest Houston, local TV KTRK reported. The gathering was mostly young adults and teenagers, according to the Houston Police Department.

Police said at some point a couple of cars drove by the party and there was a "disagreement of some sort." And then someone pulled out a gun and started shooting. Neighbors told police they heard 25 to 30 gunshots.

When police arrived at the scene, they found one male teen dead from gunshot wounds, investigators said. They also found another teen a block over, who fled the scene after being wounded in the thigh. Two more teens with gunshot wounds were found later in another vehicle. All three are believed in stable condition at a hospital Saturday morning.

Investigators are still talking to witnesses to find out how the shooting happened. There are no suspects in custody so far.

This is the second house party shooting that happened in the city this month. On November 9, gunfire erupted at a massive house party where more than 100 young people were celebrating a birthday, leaving two high school students dead and 19 others injured.
