Around 10 p.m., however, police said the hosts of the party began charging admission for an "after party."
A number of people who were not invited to the original party paid admission to get into the after party. Many of them were patted down for weapons by men acting as security.
At some point, police said a fight broke out on the dance floor and spilled out into the vestibule. Several males were spotted showing guns inside the club.
Minutes later, shots were fired.
The 15-year-old suspect was arrested on Monday and charged with criminal attempt at first-degree assault, carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of firearms, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace.
The 17-year-old suspect was arrested on Friday and charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of firearms, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace.
No other information was released.
Police called the investigation "ongoing."
“We will continue to investigate this crime until we bring all those responsible to justice," said Chief Armando Perez, Bridgeport police. "Bringing guns to a teenage sweet 16 and crashing the party, causing a ruckus where people end up getting shot is totally unacceptable."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Bridgeport police tip line at 203-576-8477.
