ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Four people were shot and wounded in a large house party on Albuquerque’s west side, but authorities said nobody was seriously injured.

Police said officers responded to the scene shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday after they received a 911 call.

Four people who were at the party suffered gunshot wounds to their legs, although police said none of the injuries were life-threatening.

They said gunfire also struck several homes and vehicles in the neighborhood, but there were no reports of injuries at those homes.

Detectives with the police department’s Gun Violence Reduction Unit recovered several firearms during the investigation.

Albuquerque Police Chief Harold Medina said it’s the second time in two months that large house parties resulted in a barrage of gunfire.

Detectives have identified several people involved and they will work with the District Attorney’s Office to pursue charges against those who are responsible, Medina added.
