    DIX HILLS, N.Y. (AP) — A man was shot in the arm during an argument at a raucous Long Island house party that police say was attended by about 400 people.

    Suffolk County police say the 34-year-old man was shot around 10:30 p.m. Saturday in Dix Hills. He is hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

    The owner of the home is charged with criminal nuisance. Two other men were charged with obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.

    They were held at a precinct overnight pending arraignment on Sunday.

    Police say a large crowd of people was fighting when officers arrived. They say officers from other precincts had to be summoned to restore order.
