At a pool party on Long Island on Sunday, three people were shot, one of whom was a security guard.

Around 5 o’clock in the evening, shots were fired at the Mansion at Glen Cove, a posh hotel on Long Island’s Gold Coast, when a security officer allegedly attempted to break up a brawl between two partygoers, according to authorities.

According to Det. Lt. John Nagle of the Glen Cove Police Department, “There was some sort of fight, but we don’t know the specifics yet. “Shoots sounded out as one of the security guards working the event attempted to usher the people out of the estate.”

Between 150 and 200 people were present when the bullets were fired, and the police characterized the scene as being in total mayhem.

Police said it was a publicized party with a flier printed and circulated online because the building doubles as an event space and a hotel.

Near the lobby’s main entrance, there was a shooting.

Glen Cove Mayor Pamela Panzenbeck said, “It’s a bit of a shock, certainly, it’s a surprise. “This location is simply stunning. Things like this don’t happen here; it’s utilized for high school reunions, marriages, fundraisers, and other activities.”

All of the patients were treated for non-life-threatening wounds, and they were all discharged from the hospital.
