Three people were shot Sunday after gunfire broke out during a pool party at a luxury hotel on the Gold Coast of Long Island, New York police said. 

Glen Cove police said officers responded to reports of a shooting in the lobby of The Mansion at Glen Cove just after 5 p.m.

A security guard and two people believed to be party attendees were shot, the department said. All suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting occurred at an event promoted online as the “Big Fendi Celebrity B-Day Pool Party.”  Police said as many as 150 to 200 people were in attendance when gunfire erupted. 

A person took off from the scene and remains at large, police said. In a Facebook post, the department said there was no threat to the public, however. The investigation is ongoing, police said. 

The Mansion at Glen Cove was designed in 1910 by the renowned architect Charles Adam Platt, according to the hotel's website.

Originally known as The Manor, the hotel has been a location for a number of Hollywood productions, including the 1950s films "Sabrina," starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden; and Alfred Hitchcock’s "North by Northwest," starring Cary Grant.

The Mansion at Glen Cove did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The hotel shooting was one of at least two incidents in a violent weekend in the state.

At least five people were injured in a separate shooting on Coney Island early Sunday after a gunman opened fire on what police described as a pop-up party, NBC New York reported.

Police said they received reports of gunfire on the boardwalk about 2 a.m. All five victims were treated at Brooklyn-area hospitals, they said. 

It is unclear what led up to the shooting.
