HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — A “Project X”-inspired party turns deadly in Houston.

A teenage boy was killed after gunfire broke out at a house party that nearly 1,000 people attended early Wednesday morning.

“Pretty much it was just a party, a foam mansion party — the remake of ‘Project X,’” witness Sade Williams told KHOU-TV.

According to the Houston Chronicle, people found out about the massive party through Facebook and Twitter.

“It was like a stampede,” one neighbor told the paper.

Houston police told KHOU that two off-duty officers worked the party but left before the shooting.

Police say that several gunshots were heard when officers and security guards tried to disperse a large crowd, according to a report obtained by CBS Houston.

“Patrol officers got here first and they said there were people everywhere,” Sgt. Adolfo Carillo told KHOU. “There were people running everywhere and trying to leave the scene.”

Police ran after a suspect who was carrying a gun, but he got away. The suspect currently remains at large.

The party was inspired after the movie called “Project X” where teens throw a wild party while their parents are away.

This was not the first time Houston authorities have dealt with this type of party. According to KHOU, 11 teens were arrested last week after throwing a bash that caused nearly $100,000 in damage at a vacant home.
