Police responded to a report of possible shots fired at an out-of-control Priscilla Avenue party early Sunday in Flanders, Southampton Town Police said.

About 500 people attended the private party and there was a report of shots being fired about 1 a.m., according to police, who said there were several sporadic incidents of violence and fighting reported — and one man was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for injuries unrelated to gunplay.

Southampton Town police were assisted by state police and Riverhead Town Police, along with a county police helicopter, in searching for a possible gunman, authorities said.

The one injury reported was a 23-year-old Flanders man who said he was attacked by four people on Priscilla Avenue about 12:30 a.m. as he walked home from the party. The victim was thrown to the ground and punched and kicked repeatedly, according to police, who said he was taken to the hospital by Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance for treatment of a broken jaw, but was uncooperative with officers and did not want to press charges.
