Police have released surveillance video of a shooting where multiple people were shot during a sweet sixteen party in Bridgeport on Saturday night.

The shooting happened at Club Sportiva at 2500 Park Ave. around 10:45 p.m. Police received a call regarding a disturbance at the club, where about 250 to 300 people were inside.

A fight broke out inside the club and then moved to the parking lot outside.

Police said five people, which included four teenagers, were shot by at least two shooters. It is unclear at this time if the suspects and victims knew each other.

Four people were transported to St. Vincent's Medical Center and one was transported to Bridgeport Hospital.

Four people sustained non-life threatening injuries.
