Police said an argument at a residence on Chicago’s South Side at the intersection of 62nd and Morgan streets erupted in gunfire at 5:42 a.m. Tuesday, leaving four people dead and four others injured. Several people were gathering inside the home when the shooting started. The four injured included a 25-year-old man who was shot in the back of the head and another man who was shot in the back of the head. A female victim suffered unspecified gunshot wounds, and is in critical condition at University of Chicago Medical Center. A child was rushed to St. Bernard Hospital for observation, authorities said. Police intervened but no arrest was made yet.
Four people were pronounced deceased on the scene. The names and ages of those killed were not immediately released. The motive and details of what prompted the shooting are under investigation. Police blocked off Morgan Street north of 63rd Street as authorities continued to investigate. Investigators are searching for two suspects. This is the second mass shooting Chicago has seen in the last few days. The weekend before, six men and two women were wounded in a shooting in Burnside on the South Side.
