2 Lowell Men Accused Of Killing 1 At New Year's Party

Two Lowell men who caused what one witness called a "bloodbath" when they opened fire at a New Year's Eve party, killing one and injuring seven, are headed to court to face murder and other charges.

Prosecutors say 20-year-old Jameson Phoun and 19-year-old Sothy Voeun are scheduled to be arraigned in Lowell District Court on Monday.

Authorities say the suspects went to the party uninvited and were asked to leave. They allegedly returned at about 1:30 a.m. on Saturday and opened fire, killing 20-year-old Corinna Ouer and injuring seven others.

Ouer was taken to a Boston hospital where she was pronounced dead. The other victims were hospitalized and are said to be in stable condition.

Partygoer Chandavy Hong tells The Sun of Lowell that the scene was a "bloodbath."
