HIALEAH - Two gunmen crashed a girl's 15th birthday party early Sunday, shooting two teenagers to death in a back yard crowded with revelers, police said. One suspect was in custody.
The men apparently had a previous dispute with some of the partygoers, Hialeah police spokesman Jose Caragol said. When the two showed up at the party, some of the revelers threw beer bottles at them to force them to leave.
One man opened fire, but when his gun jammed the other gunman started shooting, Caragol said.
Alvaro Trana, 19, died at the scene, while another teen died at Jackson Memorial Hospital. The other boy's name was withheld while police were trying to contact his family.
One shooting suspect, Raul Maceda Dominguez, 21, was arrested shortly after the killings around 12:30 a.m. Detectives were trying to find the other suspected gunman, Jean Carlo Batista Perez, 24.
