Police are searching for a suspect after a man was killed and three other people including a teen were injured in a shooting at a Golden Glades home Sunday night, officials said.

The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. at a home in the 15000 block of South River Drive.

Police officials said there was some sort of altercation between two people before a third person pulled out a gun and opened fire.

Police said that when officers responded, they found four people suffering from gunshot wounds.

One 22-year-old man was shot in the chest, while a 24-year-old was shot in the buttocks and a 14-year-old boy was grazed, police said. A 36-year-old woman was also grazed and treated at the scene.

The three other victims were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. The 22-year-old man had been listed in critical condition, but later died, police confirmed. The other two victims were in stable condition.

The victims' identities haven't been released.

The investigation is ongoing and police said they are looking into whether it was a domestic incident.

Neighbors said the shooting happened during a party at the home, which neighbors said has become a problem house with noise and streets clogged.

"We just kind of know it's a big party because the streets are blocked off or we see a lot of other people," one neighbor said.

The home's owner, Maurice Symonette, also known as "Michael the Black Man," said the shooting stemmed from an argument over a phone and had nothing to do with his party.

"We don’t have problems over here. Because the guy that got killed was arguing over a phone, it had nothing to do with me throwing a party," he said.

But neighbors said they've repeatedly called code enforcement over the partying at the house.

"Can you tell them to move out or stop the partying?" one neighbor said. "Definitely we have to do something as a neighborhood at least."
