The shooting happened just after 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of West Hastings Street, Chicago police said.
Five people were shot — two of them fatally — just south of Little Italy Sunday, hours after a man was killed and a woman wounded in a separate shooting on the same block.
The second shooting happened just after 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of West Hastings Street, Chicago police said. Officers responding to a call of a male firing shots in the area found several men and women suffering from various gunshot wounds.
Two men, 27 and 26 years old, were taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead, police said.
Two women who were sitting in a black sedan were shot as well, and both are in good condition at Mount Sinai Hospital. One woman, 31, had been struck in the hip and the other, 25, was hit in the left arm.
A third man, who police think may be a possible offender, is in custody at Stroger Hospital and being treated for a graze wound to his nose. Police initially believed that a sixth person had been shot, but later discovered that her injuries were the result of broken glass on the scene.
In addition to the man being treated for the graze wound, detectives are questioning two more people of interest in relation to the shooting, police said. Several weapons were recovered at the scene.
A woman near the scene told the Sun-Times several people were gathered outside of a party when the shooting occurred. She declined to be named.
Liquor bottles, red cups and shoes were strewn across the block, left behind by people who fled the scene.
At about 1:30 a.m. earlier Sunday morning, a man was killed and a woman was wounded in a shooting on the same block. Police did not say whether or not the two shootings were related.
