Chattanooga officials shut down Ridgedale party house

photo A shooting on 13th street early Sunday morning went terribly wrong and left this house with at least 10 bullet holes in Chattanoogac on Monday.

When police officers went to investigate the house where five people were shot during a party Sunday, they were surprised to find almost no furniture inside the home at 2412 E. 13th St.

Aside from a mattress in the bedroom and a TV in the corner of the living room, the house was empty, said Capt. Brian Cotter, who is in charge of the area.

"It looked like it was set up as, like, a party house and not a residence," Cotter said.

Of course, having no furniture is not a crime.

But neighbors say the house was at the center of criminal activity.
