Attackers fired semiautomatic weapons at a child’s birthday party in Detroit, killing one person and wounding nine others, authorities said.

A 20-year-man died in the Saturday night shooting, CNN reported.

Nine other people — three women and six men — suffered injuries.

It’s a “miracle” no child was injured at the party, which was held at a basketball court, Detroit Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt said.

About 400 people attended the party, but there are no leads so far, and witnesses are not cooperating, Dolunt said.

“There are kids out here. I’m livid. … There’s not any excuse why no one is talking,” he said. “Man up or woman up, whatever, and tell us what’s going on.”

Dolunt said police are looking for the owner of an abandoned red car found across the street whose occupants they believe were shot.
