People at the party told police that they were trying to make a person leave, which led to a fight outside.

During the fight, an unidentified man shot at least once. A bullet struck the victim in his foot. It's not clear if the victim is the same person who was asked to leave the party.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office is leading the investigation. More information is expected to be released.
