SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say an 8-year-old girl and four other people wounded by gunfire during a memorial service in upstate New York are expected to survive.

Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler says all five victims are in stable condition Friday after being shot around 9 p.m. Thursday outside a home. He says ages of the victims range from 8 to 35.

The Post-Standard reports that witnesses say they saw two to three possible shooters and heard at least 10 shots. Police haven't confirmed the number of shooters or revealed a possible motive.

Neighbors told police about 50 people had gathered outside a house to commemorate a man who recently died of cancer.
