Two teens are dead in Houston birthday party shooting

Posted: Updated:

Two Houston high school students were shot and killed late Saturday evening at a birthday party in suburban Cypress.

There were more than 100 people at the party, mostly teenagers, for a girl's 18th birthday.

Investigators say someone fired a gun into the air in celebration, out of confusion some else started firing into the crowd of people.  Police don't think there was any fight, but there were some in the crowd that have gang ties.

An 18-year-old male and a 16-year-old female were killed.  20 others were hurt, 16 of them with gunshot wounds. 

Police are searching for two shooters.  One of them is in his late teens, the other in his early 20's.
