Four people were killed and at least four more were wounded Tuesday when an argument escalated into gunfire on Chicago’s Southside, police said.
The victims — three women and a man — were at a residence in the Englewood neighborhood when the bullets started flying around 5:45 a.m. CT, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said.
All four four were pronounced dead at the scene, a house in the 6200 block of South Morgan Street, Brown said.
Brown released no other details about the four victims or what sparked the latest outbreak of gun violence in the Windy City. He said no arrests have been made and there was no sign of forced entry, but police have found shell casings inside the house and a large-capacity “drum magazine.”
Mayor Lori Lightfoot called the mass shooting “a tragedy that’s ripped apart families and inflicted intense trauma on several individuals.”
“It tells us that we still have much work to do in our mission to end gun violence here in Chicago and in particular, to limit the access of individuals to illegal guns,” Lightfoot said.
Meanwhile, three men and a woman were recuperating in nearby hospitals police said.
