MORRIS PARK, the Bronx — A Sweet 16 turned deadly after one teen was killed and another was injured when shots were fired early Thursday in the Bronx.

Authorities arrived at Maestro’s Caterers along Bronxdale Avenue shortly before 12:30 a.m. and found two teens with gunshot wounds in front of the venue, police said.

A 16-year-old male was shot in the neck and later died at the hospital. The second victim, a 17-year-old male was shot in the left arm. He was taken to the hospital in stable condition.

An employee at the venue told PIX11 News that a party just ended. Guests were leaving the party when a dispute erupted outside the catering hall and shots were fired, police said.

No arrests have been made. Police are looking for the suspected gunmen who they said fled the scene in a dark-colored Honda.
