When writing a story where the characters are talking, is it a new paragraph each time a different character speaks?

Specifically the following:
Paragraph describes the kids in the story and talks about them trick or treating and that they are now heading home. Should the next sentence On the way, Griffen stop and shouts "Guys look at this!" be a new paragraph?

asked by Patty
  1. The first dialogue can be in the paragraph it is coming from, but when the kid responds, it should start a new paragraph every time.
