This Year Halloween Is Not So Sweet

Halloween Party Goers Get More Than The Traditional Night Of Terror.

Halloween a night of candy and costumes. This holiday has turned into two separate nights of terror as these celebratory events have gone wrong.

Austin Texas

The Police were called to a Halloween party around 6 am when a man dressed as Santa Claus shot up the party.  Four people were shot, three of which were seriously wounded and transported to the hospital.

The Santa Claus clad man was found at a second residence but came quietly. Victims who were seriously injured have been identified as one male in his 20’s and two females in their 30’s. The gunman was also injured but police say there was not any force used in the apprehension of the shooter. This story is still developing and much has yet be released.

Edison, New Jersey

Last Friday Night-Saturday Morning

A banquet hall in New Jersey was the scene of yet another Halloween party shooting this time with only three people injured, their current condition unknown. The Party was a College run event that was going perfectly until Midnight when suddenly an unknown shooter fired off some rounds. Frightened Partygoers fled to the neighboring Hilton Inn and took refuge in the lobby.

Seems like this is a year for handing out candy, instead of attending parties.
