Two people were assaulted and one person was shot during a party in New Hyde Park last week, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

Officials said multiple people “severely” beat up a 23-year-year-old man during a party held last Tuesday “in the vicinity” of 50 Nassau Terminal Road in New Hyde Park.  Two people pointed pistols at a 19-year-old girl who attempted to stop the fight before another person hit her over the head with a glass bottle, according to a Police Department news release.

The unidentified attackers fired “multiple shots” into a large crowd of people around 11:20 p.m., hitting a 38-year-old man in the leg before they fled the scene in multiple vehicles, officials said. The 23-year-old man who was beaten and the 38-year-old man who was shot in the leg were both transported to seek further medical treatment and were in stable condition afterward, according to the news release. Officials said the 19-year-old who had the glass bottle smashed on her head declined medical treatment.

Officials said the investigation was ongoing. Efforts to reach law enforcement representatives for further comment or update on the investigation were unavailing.
