Gunfire erupted at 6:21 p.m. outside the gathering in the 6300 block of South Seeley. Authorities said two of those individuals were children; a 10-year-old girl who was shot in the shin and an 8-year-old boy who was shot in the chest and back. At the hospital, both were in stable condition. A 29-year-old woman who was shot in the shoulder and chest area was taken to Christ Hospital in critical condition, along with a 42-year-old man who was shot twice in the hip. Two other males who were shot were taken to the hospital. “The shooting occured at a family gathering,” police said.
Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi tweeted that “Individuals on scene are not being cooperative with detectives.” Detectives were reviewing footage from nearby surveillance cameras but had little physical evidence to work with at the scene. It was supposed that the gathering was a baby shower. No information was obtained about the gunman and the circumstances of the shooting. No one was in custody Saturday evening.
