A high school graduation party ended in gunfire overnight, sending two people to the hospital. It happened around 11:30pm at the Wynnewood Apartments off Wortham and FM 1960. Langham Creek High School's graduation was Friday, and students were having a post graduation party. A deputy says during the party, there was some sort of fight that escalated. One of the teens apparently pulled out a gun and started shooting.

There were dozens of graduates inside the clubhouse where the party was being held. Authorities say two teens were shot, both in the leg. They were transported to North Cypress Medical Center and are expected to be fine.

Authorities say the shooter took off on foot and remains on the loose. Deputies say while party-goers likely know who the gunman is, no one is cooperating with authorities.

Anyone with information should contact authorities.
