TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Police say three people were wounded in a shooting at a Tempe house party and the grandmother who owns the home has been arrested.
 
Authorities say officers responded to a home near Apache Boulevard and Price Road early Saturday after reports of gunfire.
 
According to police, the officers found 25 teenagers in the house and three people with gunshot wounds.
 
Police spokesman Aaron Levi says the victims, who are between 16 and 19 years old, suffered minor injuries.
 
Levi says it also took 45 minutes to convince guests to leave.
 
Officers then arrested 63-year-old Yolanda Jaime for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
 
Jaime told police she had been at a casino and was unaware of the party.
 
It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.
