FOUR PEOPLE WERE KILLED and three others injured in a shooting outside a restaurant in Buffalo, New York.

Police initially could not confirm if anyone from a party that had been held in the restaurant earlier that night was involved. It has since emerged that an argument at a private party in the restaurant spilled onto the street outside.

Shots were then fired, striking seven people. Police are still trying to determine who fired the shots, and how many people were involved.

Officers were called to the scene at around 2.30 am (7.30 am Irish time) this morning. Three people were found dead, and the fourth person died in hospital from their wounds.

One of the three people injured in the incident is in serious condition in hospital, but no details have been released yet on the other two. Witnesses said that one of the dead men was due to be married today.
