Three people were injured in a shooting at a Long Island pool party

Three people were shot dead when gunfire erupted at a pool party at a fancy Long Island hotel on Sunday afternoon, local police said.

Two party-goers and a security guard were shot dead just after 5 p.m. during the private party at The Mansion at Glen Cove, a luxury hotel on Long Island’s “Gold Coast” that is a popular wedding spot.

A gunman opened fire amid “disorder” among those attending the gathering, which was advertised online as the “Big Fendi Celebrity B-Day Pool Party,” Glen Cove Police said.

The three victims suffered life-threatening injuries, police said. They are being treated in nearby hospitals.

The event attracted between 150 and 200 people and was ongoing when shots were fired, according to the local department.

A suspect fled the scene before police arrived and remains at large. However, Glen Cove Police said there was no danger to the public and their investigation was ongoing.

The hotel’s outdoor pool, which offers poolside loungers and cabanas as well as views of the mansion’s gardens, was closed for Sunday’s private event, according to the events calendar.

The violent incident adds to the turbulent and glamorous history of the mansion.

The Glen Cove mansion was built in 1910 by architect Charles Adams Platt. The 55-acre property housed corporate attorney John Teele Pratt and Ruth Baker Pratt, who became the first New York woman to be elected to Congress, before being converted into a conference center hotel in 1967.

The unidentified victims were shot after 5:00 p.m. after a disturbance broke out among those present.

The building and its grounds were also part of the set of two popular films in the 1950s – Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden, and Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, starring Cary Grant.

Management for the Mansion did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
