Nine people were shot in the East Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn early Sunday morning at a house party, police said.

Four men and five women -- all younger than 45 -- sustained injuries and were transported to four hospitals. Seven patients were released; two remain in the hospital and are in stable condition. The injuries were not life-threatening, according to the NYPD.

But the horrors of the shooting have left many shaken.

“There was basically nowhere to run. It was chaotic,” said Aaron Strahan, who lives at the home where the shooting happened on East 52nd Street in East Flatbush. “People were laying on the floor. People were banging on my door, trying to get in. People were trying everything possible to stay alive.

Strachan’s nephew was hosting the event. Strachan said the commotion started when a fight broke out shortly before 1 a.m., and one of the men involved left and came back – bypassing the party’s security with a gun.

“This guy just went out, came back in and just started shooting,” Strachan said.

One woman initially was in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to stable after emergency surgery. No arrests have been made yet.
