Five people, including an 8-year-old girl, were hurt in a shooting in upstate New York Thursday night. The shooting reportedly took place at a home in Syracuse, where, according to eyewitnesses, a family had gathered to celebrate the life of a relative who had recently died of cancer. Cops said the shots appeared to have been fired from across the street, hitting the lawn where between 20 and 30 people gathered for the service, but neither a suspect nor a motive have been identified. Officers said there was no evidence linking the shooting with the a nearby shooting of a 14-year-girl shortly afterward. Police Chief Frank Fowler said: “This is a very tragic event. This is something that cannot occur in our community.” Fowler said it appeared at least 10 shots were fired, the oldest victim was 35 years old, and that all of the injured are expected to survive.
