4 shot at party in south suburb
Four people were shot, one in critical condition, early this morning after a large party in south suburban Park Forest, officials said.
Police were called to the 200 block of Berry Street at 1 a.m. for multiple 911 calls of gunfire, police said in a press release.
When police arrived, they found evidence that a shooting had taken place at a home where a large party had been held, but police could not find anyone with injuries at the time, police said.
As police began investigating, they were apprised that four people who had been shot had fled the scene. Three went to a local hospital to be treated. A fourth person called from a nearby home.
Two men suffered non-life threatening wounds and were treated and released from Franciscan St. James Health hospital in Chicago Heights. The two others were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
An 18-year-old man sustained a gunshot wound to his chest and was listed in critical but stable condition at Christ Medical Center after undergoing surgery. The second victim treated at Christ had sustained wounds to his neck and arm and was treated and released.
Park Forest police along with the South Suburban Major Task Force responded.
