LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) - Police say multiple people were treated for gunshot wounds after gunfire erupted at a late-night birthday party in Lowell.

According to the Lowell Sun, at least five people were shot at the outdoor party at a home on Midland Street at about 11 p.m. Wednesday.

A woman shot in the chest and a man struck in the leg were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Two other victims were brought to the hospital in private vehicles.

No names or conditions were immediately available.

The party was for someone turning 21.
