EL CAJON, Calif. -- One person was shot and another stabbed at a woman's twentieth birthday party in El Cajon, police said Sunday.

Several 911 calls came in to police at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday, reporting a fight at a party on Andover Road just east of South Second Street, El Cajon Police Lt. Eric Taylor said.

Homeowner and mother to the birthday girl Dena Gonzales said it was fun until some uninvited guests showed up.

“It was a family get-together, just having a good time and just enjoying each other like we always do,” Gonzales said. "A girl came over and brought a guy that we didn’t even know. We had to tell him to leave the house, because he was showing a gun."

Dena says the group of people who had been kicked out started a fight before taking off in their car.

Police say at some point a silver car returned to the home, with passengers firing shots at partygoers standing outside. One person, a 21-year-old woman identified only as "Beta," was shot in the stomach. She was taken to a local hospital and was undergoing surgery, Taylor said.

No one else was hit by gunfire, but when police arrived at the home, they found a man in his 50s had also been stabbed in the buttocks, according to Taylor. The suspects had already left by the time officers arrived, and no one had been arrested as of Sunday afternoon.

"Nobody died, that’s good, but still, you don’t want to see your loved ones get hurt," Gonzales told FOX 5.
