From The Chicago Tribune:

Seven people were shot during a rap album release party at Mr. G’s Entertainment Center in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side early Thursday morning, authorities say.

At least one gunman opened fire after a fight broke out shortly after 1 a.m. as the party at the club at 87th Street and Ashland Avenue was winding down, according to Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro. It wasn’t clear if any of the wounded were the shooters, he said.

Six of those shot went to hospitals on their own, police said.

Responding officers heard people shouting “They’re shooting!” and “I’m shot,” police said. The officers discovered several patrons shot at the club.

Police said the shooting appeared to be gang related, but it wasn’t clear what led to the fight and shooting.

The camera inside the club wasn’t working, and detectives planned on checking footage from a surveillance camera across the street at a phone store, police said.

Rappers Lil’ Mouse and King Samson had been performing at the club, according to Chicago police and a patron.
