Kevin Graham, of the Chicago Police Union president, speaks about the seizure of 10,000 illegal guns from the streets of Chicago this year

More than a dozen people were wounded in a shooting on Chicago’s South Side early Sunday morning for a memorial for someone who died from gun violence this year, officials said.

At least 13 people were injured, including four who are left seriously injured at a house party in Englewood, for the Office of the current Chief, Fred Waller, told reporters at a press conference.

The shooting incident unfolded at about 12:35 a.m., and it is an “isolated incident,” said Waller. He said he was in the house, in a dispute and shots were fired inside. As the people poured out on to the street, and shots were fired.

The bureau of patrol, the chief said, authorities found three scenes with a variety of shell casings connected to the shooting. Waller told reporters that two of the people in the order have been made, of which one was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound. Investigators have recovered a gun from the other person.

From the outside, it certainly was for two hours,” Waller said on Sunday. “It seemed like they were just shooting randomly at the people as they left the party.”


For those who were wounded in the shoot-out range in age from 16-to 48-year-old, Waller said, adding four people were in critical condition, while the others are stable.
