Teen shot at prom party inside Brooklyn high-rise building allegedly had a gun: Source

A 17-year-old boy was shot inside a luxury high-rise in Brooklyn Thursday night, according to police. 

The incident happened around 9 p.m. at a prom party inside a 26-story residential building on Linden Boulevard between Bedford and Rogers Avenues. 

The circumstances of the shooting are still unclear.  A law enforcement source said that a dispute broke out before the suspects and the victim started firing at each other and that the victim allegedly had a gun. 

 Police say they are looking for two men that were wearing surgical masks that they said allegedly fled the scene westbound on Linden Boulevard toward Bedford Avenue. 

"To live in a building where there's now been a shooting. I don't know who got shot, but I know people were taken away, in ambulances," one resident said. 

FOX 5 reached out to the building's management in response to the violence but has not heard back yet. 

FOX 5 NY's Briella Tomassetti reported seeing police walking out of the building Friday morning with a man in handcuffs. However, police said that it had nothing to do with the prom incident. 

The boy was shot in the stomach and taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition.

The investigation remains ongoing. 

Residents claim there have been numerous incidents within the building that have them on edge. 

The incident adds to the recent spate of violence involving teens in Brooklyn.
