CHICAGO – Five people were shot just west of Garfield Park late Tuesday, marking the city’s second mass shooting that day, according to Chicago police.
Four men and a woman suffered gunshot wounds during the attack in the 3800 block of West Monroe Street about 9:20 p.m., authorities said in a media notification. One of the people was in critical condition after the shooting, but four others had been listed in good condition, officials said.
