    Nine people were wounded overnight when gunshots erupted at a party in Brooklyn, witnesses and police said Sunday.

    All of those shot were expected to survive their wounds, investigators said. The victims range in age from 19 to 38.

    The shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. Sunday in East New York at an all-day party at a house near the intersection of Stanley Avenue and Crescent Street.

    At least 13 people were taken to area hospitals, according to a spokesperson at the Fired Department of New York. Those who weren't shot were being treated for cuts and bruises.

    Police are still investigating at the scene. There was no information about a motive for the shootings.

    At approximately the same time, police responded to a report of a shooting in the Fort Greene neighborhood and found the body of a 46-year-old man in a courtyard across from the Walt Whitman Houses on North Oxford Walk.

    The victim, whose identity wasn't disclosed by police, had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
