Birthday Party Brawl Leaves 1 Dead

FERRIS (CBSDFW.COM) – Beatings, stabbings and gunfire broke out at what was supposed to be a family celebration in Ellis County Saturday night.

The sheriff’s department says an argument over alcohol at a girl’s 15th birthday party near Ferris spiraled out of control a little after midnight, resulting in four people being shot, two being beaten and two people being stabbed.

One person died as result of the gunfire. An 11 year-old got caught up in the violence, but authorities say that child survived. Names and conditions are not being released, but the sheriff’s department did say that a few of the victims had to have surgery early Sunday morning.

    WFAA gave more detail. Hopefully the immigration status of these people was checked and they will soon be moved south so they don’t do this to another neighborhood!

    No fedup, they only want a better life and this is our future courtesy of the FEDS. We didn’t have near enough underclass in America so, let’s keep them, but relocate them next door to the Mayor.

    Alcohol and bad feelings are never a good combination.

    By the way white people have had their alcohol fueled shootings as well, should we send them all back to Ireland?

    This web page gathers the most racist readers.

      Are all white people irish? And are all Irish people drunks. Only 10% of the American population can trace their roots back to Ireland. Seems like we found another rascist that stereoypes everybody.

      Irony is fun.

        Agreed, I fall in that 10% I don’t drink alcohol to excess and start fights. This Article really has nothing to do with their “immigration” status, it has to do with family violence. Hopefully this young girls family can make it up to her some other way for her special day.
