PARMA, Ohio — A 28-year-old pregnant woman was grazed in the stomach by a bullet and a 32-year-old man was also shot in the stomach during a shooting that occurred at a party in Parma Saturday night, according to the Parma Police Department.

Around 9:55 p.m., officers were called to the KD Party Center on State Road for report of a large fight that resulted in shots fired.

Once on scene, officers found two shooting victims—a 28-year-old pregnant woman who had been grazed in the stomach by a bullet and a 32-year-old man who had been shot once in the stomach/groin area.

Police said a 28-year-old man was attempting to leave the scene when he dropped a handgun as he walked by the first responding officer on scene. That man was arrested and while first denying any involvement, later admitted to firing two shots.

He has been charged with two counts of felonious assault.

His bond has been set for $500,000.

According to the initial investigation, a fight at an adult birthday party broke out which involved the 28-year-old man who was arrested, the 32-year-old man who was shot and a 31-year-old man who was an acquaintance of the shooting victims.

Police said the pregnant woman was stabilized and the 32-year-old man remains in critical condition.
