13 people were shot early Sunday morning at a Chicago memorial for an April victim of gun violence after a dispute arose between attendees.
A house party held in Englewood to remember the birthday of 22-year-old Lonell Irvin ended up with victims ranging in age from 16 to 48. Police said there were multiple shooters and that four of the 13 victims were critically wounded.
The shooting took place at about 12:40 a.m. Sunday.
“It looked like they were just shooting randomly at people as they exited the party,” Bureau of Patrol Chief said. The first shots caused people to run from the party, and then more shots were fired at those leaving.
Chicago has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, but also has one of the highest rates of gun violence in the country.
