One man was shot and several others beaten with a stick, including the seven-months-pregnant guest of honor, after a baby shower went terribly wrong, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
Detroit police said three people were arrested after Saturday's baby shower brawl, described by police as a "baby shower gone bad."
The shooting victim, Aristotle Garcia, reportedly got into a fight with a man who is dating his ex-girlfriend, police told MyFoxDetroit.com.
The dispute reportedly began after Garcia questioned whether his ex-girlfriend had let their 5-year-old daughter drink beer. The argument escalated and drew in two other people, Jazz Rivas and Juan Velazquez, said Police Lt. Cheryl C. Claprood.
When the baby shower's hostess tried to calm the group, Rivas began hitting some of the guests with a large stick, including the pregnant hostess, according to MyFoxPhoenix.com.
Velazquez then fired a gun in the air, before turning the gun on the crowd and hitting Garcia in the stomach, police told the site.
Garcia, 26, is in stable condition and the mother-to-be was treated after the Saturday incident.
Velazquez, 19, was arrested Tuesday and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed assault with intent to murder, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
