Three people were shot during a pool party at The Mansion at Glen Cove on Sunday night.
Mayor Pamela Panzenbeck confirmed the incident to News 12 Long Island.
Police say shots rang out just after 5 pm at the event that was hosted by Starlets NY, a Queens-based gentleman’s club.
Glen Cove police say people were scattering across the Mansion property when officers arrived.
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.
Panzenbeck said the victims were not from Glen Cove and that she wasn’t sure if the party had a city permit or not. She promised this would be the last of these kind of parties in Glen Cove.
“This was advertised on the internet. We will not have those in the future,” Panzenbeck said, who also told News 12 Long Island that, “nothing like this has happened in Glen Cove.”
She praised the response of the Glen Cove police and indicated those involved were not Glen Cove residents.
As of Sunday night, Glen Cove police had not made any arrests or recovered any weapons.
