Thirteen people were injured this Sunday, four of them in serious condition at a house party shooting in Chicago, local police said.
The shooting was due to a dispute at the party, which was devoted to the “memory of a person killed in April,” said Fred Waller, the Chicago police patrol chief, who said the shooting began shortly after 6:30 am ( 12:30 pm in Lisbon).
The victims are between 16 and 48 years old and two people are being questioned, one of whom was detained with a gun and the other injured, he said. According to the Associated Press, a 37-year-old man was charged with allegedly being linked to the shooting.
Waller described the shooting in Englewood neighborhood as an "isolated incident."
"It's a terrible tragedy and an act of cowardice," Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, quoted by the portal, told a news conference. NPR. “We can't normalize this kind of behavior,” he said, asking people to collaborate.
“People who were in that house know what happened…. We ask them to suppress their fears and provide information so that the police can do their work and locate those responsible,” he said.
