A New Year's Eve shooting at a Lakewood residence left one man dead and five people injured, authorities said.

The shooting occurred about 11:20 p.m. at a party in the 20700 block of Alburtis Avenue, sheriff's deputies said.

"Words were exchanged and an argument ensued when gunfire suddenly erupted,'' according to a Sheriff's Department statement.

A 36-year-old man was struck in the upper torso. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The five additional victims, a woman and four men in the driveway, suffered minor, non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The male gunman fled on foot.
