Washington: Police and local media reported that at least 15 people were injured and two of them died at a “pop-up” party in a Chicago garage early on Sunday morning.
Police said the event was held at a towing company’s premises, which was converted into a party in the southern part of the city.
There was a disturbance “among several patrons and gunfire erupted striking multiple people,” police officer Jose Jara said in an email to the Chicago Tribune newspaper, adding the cause of the shoot-out was not known.
He said the people shot were aged between 20 and 44. Four weapons were found at the scene, and several witnesses were still in surgery later Sunday.
The city’s fire department confirmed temporary casualties that caused 2 deaths.
