A 16th birthday party became the scene of a quadruple shooting late Saturday night.

Witnesses told police that four party-goers were in the 1400 block of North Market Street when they were shot by unknown suspects in a black SUV around 10:55 p.m.

Three of the men sustained minor graze wounds, but a 19-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition after being shot in the neck. The 19-year-old was paralyzed by the bullet, according to an officer.

Police said they are looking for a black SUV involved in the shooting, but did not release any information on suspects.
