3 teens shot during Tempe party

Three teenagers are recovering after police say they were shot at a house party Friday night in Tempe.
The shooter is still on the loose but a grandmother was arrested in the case.
Broken glass, shattered windshield and bullet casings, that's what was left for the Tempe gang unit to go through Saturday morning after a house party turned violent.
"All i heard was pat pat pat and I grabbed my kids took them to the back and then less than five minutes later cops were here."
Peter John lives across the street. He's lived in this neighborhood near Apache and Price Road for a year and says shootings here happen all too often.
"Since we've been here it's happened at least three or four times," said John.
Police say three teenagers, ages 16-19, were shot during a party at the Tempe home.
When police arrived they found two injured teens. They had to get everyone out of the home before finding the third victim.
But officers say party-goers were not cooperating.
"It lasted for about an hour they were yelling trying to get everybody out of the house they flash banged it a couple times and no one was coming out."
Once everyone was out, the third teen was found and taken to the hospital.
"The streets were just flooded people were running down the street just people were frantic," said John.
All three teenagers are expected to be fine.
Police have not released any information on a suspect or motive.
Police have charged 63-year-old Yolanda Jaimie, the owner of the house, for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She is apparently the grandmother of one of the minors involved.
She told police she did not know about the party because she was at the casino that night.
