The shooting comes amid a spate of gun violence that has hit America.

One person has been killed after shots were fired at a Friday night party in Chester, Virginia.

Six people were shot in total, Lt. Dave Sumner told The Sun.

Chesterfield County Police said officers were dispatched after receiving reports of rowdy youngsters.

At least 13 people died and 70 were injured in over a dozen of mass shootings that took place on Memorial Day.

SHOOTING CHAOS

Researchers at the Gun Violence Archive define a mass shooting as an incident where a minimum of four victims are shot.

It does not include any shooter who may have also been killed or injured during the event.

Escaped convict Gonzalo Lopez is accused of slaughtering a family of five at their vacation home in Centerville, Texas.

Grandpa Mark Collins was among those who were found dead.

His grandsons Waylon Collins, 18, Carson, 16, Hudson, 11, and their 11-year-old cousin Bryson were also killed.

David Crain, a longtime family friend, said the loss "is going to be unfillable."

Crain added that Hudson was just baptized in the family's swimming pool three days before the 11-year-old was shot dead in cold blood.

And, 19 kids and two teachers were slaughtered by lone gunman Salvador Ramos inside an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas on May 24.
