Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A 17-year-old girl is dead and another teen critically injured after a shooting at a house party in the northeast Valley early Sunday morning.

Police were called to the 4200 block of Tattersall Place before 1 a.m. after reports of random gunfire.

When they arrived, authorities found two young women suffering gunshot wounds. Both were rushed to the hospital where one victim later died from her injuries. The second victim remains in critical condition.

Homicide detectives believe an argument between men led to gunfire being exchanged. They don't think either woman involved in the fight or an intended target of the gunshots.

Police have not made any arrests in connection with the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
