(Newser) – Two people have been killed and at least 22 others injured when gunfire rang out at a large house party in suburban Houston, sending partygoers fleeing in panic, authorities said. The shots erupted late last night at the party where more than 100 mostly young adults had gathered at a home in the Cypress area of Houston's suburbs, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said. A statement from that office said two suspects were being sought, but it did not elaborate. The office said a man and woman were dead and those hurt had injuries ranging from minor to critical. None of the victims were identified by name.

Earlier, Thomas Gilliland, a spokesman with the sheriff's office, told the Houston Chronicle that some of the wounded suffered shots to the foot, ankle, and hip. He also told the paper that others fleeing the home had injuries such as twisted ankles. "It was a pretty chaotic scene," Gilliland said, adding that deputies arriving at the scene saw some people lying on the ground and others running. The newspaper quoted witnesses as saying some people banged on doors for help afterward urging neighbors to call 911 amid scenes of crying and screaming.

More guns sure took care of reducing crime, didn't it? Gun makers own Republicans and most Democrats in office. Gun makers have indoctrinated too many Americans for decades.

Oh wow, great. Now that's what I call the party, Festivus the Texas style. Was Ted Cruz invited?
