Teen who hosted after-prom party where two were shot dead and four were injured ... trends now
The teenager who hosted an after-prom party at her home in Mississippi where two high schoolers were shot dead and four were injured has spoken up about the horrors she faced.
The 18-year-old, who asked not to be named, said she reluctantly agreed to host the after-prom party this year because nobody else would agree to plan one.
But as about 60 to 70 students from Bay High School in Bay St. Louis and Hancock High School in Kiln were celebrating early Sunday morning, a gunman opened fire, killing two teenagers and injuring four others — one of whom is in critical condition. He then fled the scene and allegedly returned home.
Cameron Everett Brand, 19, of Pass Christian, was later arrested and charged with four counts of aggravated assault and two counts of murder. He is being held in a Mississippi jail without bail.
'He just started shooting, and left without remorse,' the 18-year-old hostess told the Sun Herald of the suspected gunman.

They said they did not supply any of the teenagers with alcohol, though some students brought their own and many were drinking.
Neither the girl nor her mother said they heard any yelling or signs of an argument — and their first sign that anything was wrong was the sound of gunshots.
The girl and her mother said they never saw the weapon, but her mother heard sounds of 'pow, pow, pow,'
The teenager, meanwhile, said her friends grabbed her and pulled her into the woods behind the house after shots first rang out.
When the shooting stopped, she said, she saw someone laying besides her mother's car and went to give him CPR — but
