RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Six young people were hurt Friday night in a shooting after a fight at a nightclub in Raleigh.

Two boys and four girls between the ages of 12 and 17 were hurt and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said. Only one of the victims suffered serious injuries.

The fight happened before 11 p.m. and led to gunshots being fired inside Club Dreams on Paula Street, according to police. More gunshots were fired as the fight continued outside the nightclub, which was hosting a large private party at the time, police said.

Police have not determined whether the victims were shot inside or outside the club.

Raleigh police said they are searching for a suspect and that it appears that only one gun was used in the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 919-996-3855.

They most definitely need to reword this article. I clicked on it to figure out why a 12 year old was at a night club just to learn it was a private party. Should have read that teenagers were hurt after/during a party held at a Raleigh establishment, but I guess it's less interesting then.

I agree, I read the article and still have questions for the parents! What was a 12yr. doing in a night club, at a private party, WITH OLDER TEENS, at 11:30pm? WHERE was the chaperones? Security?parents? RIDICULOUS! And we wonder why there are so many of our young people hurt or killed!
