GREENWOOD, SC (WYFF) - A Columbia teenager is dead and four others are recovering after they were gunned down at an Upstate birthday party.

Greenwood police say 15-year-old Malik Padgett died from a gunshot wound to the chest, while the other four suffered injuries that didn't appear life-threatening Saturday night.
