    Chicago House Party Shooting Leaves 13 Wounded, 4 Critically, Police Say

    Chicago police announce arrest after 13 shot at memorial for slain person

    "A house party on the South Side of Chicago was meant to remember a man who was fatally shot during a carjacking in April, the authorities said. But the memorial itself erupted into violence early Sunday after at least two gunmen opened fire, wounding 13 people, four of them critically.

    The shooting took place just after 12:30 a.m. in the Englewood neighborhood on the birthday of the carjacking victim, said Tom Ahern, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department. About 70 people, including friends and relatives of the man, were in the two-story house at the time, he said.

    The motive for the shooting on Sunday was not immediately clear..."

    "Chief Waller said the victims had “various gunshot wounds to their bodies.” The youngest was 16, he said, and the oldest was about 48. He said four people were critically injured and the rest were in stable condition."

    "Chief Waller said surveillance footage captured part of the shooting, which took place on the 5700 block of South May Street. After gunshots were fired during a dispute inside the home, people began spilling outside, and two gunmen fired on the crowd, he said.

    “It looked like they were just shooting randomly at people as they exited the party,” he said."
