CHICAGO (CBS) — Six people, including three teenage girls, were in the hospital Saturday morning after being struck by bullets in a mass shooting in Chicago’s Parkway Gardens neighborhood Friday night.
They were shot on the 6500 block of South King Drive shortly after 9 p.m.
Chicago Police say it started inside an apartment and then spilled into a hallway. It’s not clear how many people were there, but at the first sound of gunshots, everyone ran out into the hallway. That’s when more shots were fired.
