At least 15 people were shot at a party on Chicago’s South Side early Sunday morning, leaving two dead and 13 wounded, police said.
Police Superintendent David Brown said during a news conference Sunday, those shot were between the ages of 20 and 44, and over a dozen people remain in serious or critical condition at hospitals while some are still in surgery, according to CNN.
He said four guns were seized at the building, a makeshift setup converted for a pop-up party.
The Chicago Tribune reported the 4:40 a.m. shooting was believed to be “gang-related,” according to a Chicago police report citing preliminary information.
According to the police report “a woman who was shot three times, including once in the head, was found dead outside the building. A man, with gunshot wounds to his neck and leg, later was found dead inside in a “backroom.”
Brown said so far there are no suspects in custody.
This is the second mass shooting with 15 people injured in less than a year. Last summer, 15 people were shot in a gang related drive-by shooting at a funeral for a victim of another drive-by shooting.
In the hours after the shooting, Mayor Lori Lightfoot made a statement on Twitter, “It is tragic that the warmth of a spring day, at a time we all crave the company of family and friends, resulted in shooting and death.”
