Police say at least one person in an adjoining backyard opened fire on a group of people attending the party around 11 p.m. Saturday. Police Lt. Jim Pickens says the teen died in a hospital Sunday.
Eight other people hit by gunfire included six adult males, one adult female and a male juvenile. Their conditions are not known.
Pickens says detectives have determined that a neighbor was not responsible for the shooting, but rather a gunman, or gunmen, who went into the backyard and opened fire.
No arrests have been made, and police have not determined a motive.
