Eight people were shot and another was killed in a shooting at birthday party at the Minaret Temple at about 11:30 p.m. in Chester Friday night, according to Chester police. Police have a suspect in custody.

All nine victims were taken to Crozer Chester Medical Center. Two remain in critical condition and six are in stable condition, police said.

As many as six people were shot in Chester at around 11:40 Friday night during a social gathering at a fraternal organization’s building on West 4th Street near Ward Street, according to Chester police.

Police said one victim was shot in the head, and two firearms were recovered from the scene.

Chester Mayor Wendell Butler Jr., reached at 1:45 Saturday morning, said he had visited the scene at Minaret Temple No. 174.

“There may be one fatality,” he said. Asked about the number injured, he said, “I think it was more than half a dozen.”

What led to the shootings was not immediately known, and early Saturday morning police said they were still investigating what unfolded at the temple in a residential neighborhood.

R.I.P. to the person who passed and a speedy recovery to those injured. Let’s do better people!
