VANCOUVER -- A 19-year-old suffered a gunshot wound to the hip early Saturday morning in what police call a gang-related fight outside a rented party hall.

Police were called to 808 Main Street about 1:13 a.m. on reports that shots were fired and a person hit by gunfire.

The injured man was transported to Legacy Emanuel hospital.

The suspect in the shooting fled the area. A gun was seized at the scene but it wasn't known right away whether it was the weapon used in the shooting.

Police said the party was at a venue called the Vancouver Ballroom.

In a prepared statement, police wrote "It is rented out for dances ranging from polka groups to hip hop DJ events. This particular night the location was rented out to "Iparty hard entertainment" This was a DJ hip hop / Rap event also themed a black and white party."
