Three people, including a 15-year-old boy, were shot during a backyard party Saturday night in west suburban Aurora.

The three were among several people at a party 11:05 p.m. at a home in the 1800 block of Plum Street, according to Aurora police.

Police said the group was in the backyard when one or more shooters walked up and opened fire.

No description of the suspect or suspects is available, police said, but the “shooting does not appear to be random.”
