The party came off around 9 p.m on Friday, March 23rd 2024 at 1320 Ackerson Blvd. with approximately 50 people.

Neighbors told News 12 that the homeowner runs a day care out of the property and was having a farewell party to celebrate it being sold however, the party turned violent.

A shooting broke out and Sean Mills was fatally struck in the head. Another teen, a 17-year-old girl, was injured in the attack.

Sean Mills was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

According to his family, Sean Mills had big dreams – his room filled with past accomplishments and future goals.

One of his older brothers, James Mills, says he was well on his way.

“What he really wanted to do was become, you know, a fighter because he was good at fighting at that’s what he wanted to do. Like he was training in MMA,” he said.

James said his brother had been receiving some threats on social media and had only gone to the party because a flyer promoting it specifically stated that no weapons would be allowed.

“I don’t know how people like that are still walking around doing all these heinous, crazy acts,” his brother, James said.

He added a warning about attending house parties.

“If it’s a house party, don’t be going to no house party, because a lot of people that don’t like you would be there…there’s like all types people, you got no idea who they are, no clue who they are,” he added.
