There were six people shot on Saturday morning in the city’s Auburn Gresham, according to ABC7Chicago.
The report said an unidentified gunman opened fire into a crowd at about 2:15 a.m.Darryl Martin, a witness of the shooting, told the station that it was a “conversation with bullets; people were shooting it out.”
Last week, NBC Chicago reported that the city was on pace to eclipse 700 homicides and is experiencing a year where gun violence has surged by 50% as compared to 2019.
The report said that the city has already had more murders than in 2016, a violent year. The report pointed out that in April, one of the goals of the city’s police force was to keep the number of homicides below 300.
