After Alicea Wallace told her two teenage children they could host a party, her daughter posted the party on Facebook. The party of primarily high school students swelled to about 150 attendees and a fight broke out.
Alicea and her husband Jessie Wallace then decided to shut the party down.
As people were leaving, three young men who had left earlier walked up to the property and began shooting into the crowd.
Jessie Wallace, 58, was shot in the head as he was attempting to get people to go home.
Sheriff officials suspect the shooting could be gang related.
