A teenager has died and at least four others were wounded after a group of people fired shots at another group on Chicago’s South Side, authorities said.
A male later was found with a gunshot wound to his leg after he opened fire toward officers responding to the scene about 8:20 p.m. Thursday, Chicago police said in a release. It was not immediately clear whether he was shot by an officer.
A 14-year-old boy wounded during the initial shooting died at a hospital. The others — ages 16 to 21 — were taken to hospitals for treatment.
Two handguns were recovered, police said.
Three officers were taken to hospitals for observation following the shooting.
