The other attendees of the party then started to chase the shooter, who turned and allegedly fired at other people.

The shooter was struck multiple times with at least one landscaping brick and died.
Police said a handgun they believe belonged to the shooter was recovered. Homicide detectives are continuing to interview everyone who was at the gathering.
