3 Shot, 1 Dead at Child's Birthday Party in Coney

A man invaded a child's fifth birthday part near the Sea Rise II projects on Coney Island this weekend and shot the place up, hitting three guests, one of whom they killed. The deceased was identified by another guest as 18-year-old Alize Gueta; the Daily News says she was an Argentine immigrant who had been baby-sitting for the hostess. A 22-year-old woman and Joseph Fonseca, 34, were also hit and are at Lutheran Medical Center. Motives and suspects are yet unknown; Andre Holliday, the father of the celebrant, said the gunman "ran in, he started shooting, and he ran out."
