Three people were shot during a pool party at The Mansion at Glen Cove on Sunday night, police say.
Police say shots rang out just after 5 p.m. at the event that was hosted by Starlets NY, a city-based gentleman's club.
Nearly 200 people were at the mansion for the party to celebrate celebrity Big Fendi's birthday. The event was heavily advertised on social media and open to the public.
Police say there was an altercation at the party between a couple of guests. A security guard was taking the people out when several shots were fired in the vicinity of the lobby.
Two party guests were struck in addition to a security guard.
Police say the victims who suffered injuries that were not life-threatening were taken to the hospital.
Glen Cove Hospital confirmed some victims were taken to its facility.
Glen Cove police say the party was made up of mostly people from out of town. Detective Lt. John Nagle says a permit was not given through City Hall for the party.
Panzenbeck said the victims were not from Glen Cove. She promised this would be the last of these kind of parties in Glen Cove.
"This is something that was advertised on the internet, and we will not have that anymore in the future," Panzenbeck says.
She praised the response of the Glen Cove police and indicated those involved were not Glen Cove residents.
Residents near the area say they have noticed an increase in how loud the mansion has been, and that it has gotten worse in recent years.
"There is a lot of loud music and a lot of noise," says Rick Meyer, of Glen Cove.
One suspected gunman was still on the loose as of Monday afternoon. Police say no arrests have been made in connection to the shooting.
"We are thoroughly investigating the entire situation, we are going to leave no stone unturned, and we have numerous detectives in the field now acquiring information," Nagle says.
