Carson City Halloween party ends with gun battle

Staff report

An exchange of gunfire cut short a Halloween party in the Northridge area Friday night leaving at least one man seriously injured.

Shortly after 9 p.m. officers were called to 2654 Longridge Drive by numerous reports of gunfire.

One Hispanic man was taken to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his head. Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong said he expected the man would be airlifted to Renown Medical Center in Reno.

Soon after, another Hispanic male showed up at the Carson hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Furlong said the two injuries are thought to be related, but that had not been confirmed as of press time.

“Apparently there was some sort of Halloween celebration going on with predominately Hispanics,” Furlong said. “There was very intensive gunfire with multiple weapons.”

The incident was being investigated by 13 law enforcement units, including one gang unit. The investigation was expected to continue through Friday night.
