CHICAGO (CBS) — A security guard was shot early Thursday after a man was denied entry into a nightclub in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood.

The man was denied entry to a club in the 1500 block of West 79th Street at 3:20 a.m., police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

He then fired a shot through the rear door, striking a 22-year-old security guard in the foot, Greer said.

Although police could only confirm one person was shot, Fire Media Affairs stated two people were taken to Holy Cross Hospital in serious condition with gunshot wounds.

No one is in custody and Area South detectives are investigating.
