ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) — Police in Northern California say six people, mostly teens, have been injured during a shooting at a girl's 16th birthday party.

Antioch police Lt. Scott Willerford told the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/yzqakH) that they believe some male attendees opened fire when two groups at the party got into an argument Saturday night.

Police say the injured included a 13-year-old boy, two 16-year-old boys, two 18-year-old men and a 21-year-old woman. They say the nature of the injuries range from a minor grazing wound to an abdomen wound.

Antioch is about 38 miles northeast of San Francisco.
