Three people were shot Saturday night during a party at a park in northwest Indiana.

At 11:16 p.m., officers responded to Methodist Hospital Northlake in Gary, Indiana and found a 17-year-old girl and a 25-year-old woman suffering from gunshot wounds, according to Gary police.

The girl told investigators they were at a celebration at Ironwood Park, 1119 E. 24th. Ave. in Gary, when they were shot while sitting in a vehicle, police said. The girl suffered a gunshot wound to her right leg, while the woman was shot twice in her upper body.

They later showed up at Methodist, where their conditions stabilized, police said.

While officers were investigating, a 25-year-old man showed up at the hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg, police said. His condition also stabilized.
