NORFOLK -- There may be more police at events in Norfolk geared towards young people after two teens were shot Friday night.

Hundreds of teens were at the NORVA on Monticello Avenue for the annual Spring Break Jam Fest when shots rang out.

Police say two people near the venue were arguing then opened fire, bullets striking a 14-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl. Police were called and tried to control the panic. A woman who lives nearby says she heard screaming and yelling.

'I love living down here, I really do. I moved here from outside of Manhattan, so I really wanted to be in this, but it was a little unnerving. I shook for awhile,' said Barbara Hyder.

Counciman Tommy Smigiel added, 'I don't think that NORVA's doing anything wrong, but as a high school assistant principal, anytime you get a group of teenagers together, you've got to have control.'

He'd also like to see parents get involved in events like these to act as chaperones.

Meantime, police are searching for the gunmen. If you know anything, call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
