An individual approached the group of party-goers where allegedly "words were exchanged" and shots were fired into the group, according to Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski.

Of the seven shot, three are "more serious” and four are "less serious," Stawinski said. All were transported to the hospital and are expected to survive.
