A 19-year-old man was killed and a 32-year-old man critically wounded in a shooting outside a small house party in Richmond early Friday, police said.

The gunfire followed an argument in the 2100 block of Garvin Avenue about 3:30 a.m., police spokesperson Nicole Abetkov said.

The victims were airlifted to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where the teen died and where the 32-year-old remains in critical condition, Abetkov said.

No arrests have been made. The cause of the shooting wasn’t immediately clear but police are following up on leads, Abetkov added.
