CHICAGO — A man has been charged in connection to a shooting where 13 people were injured, four critically, at a large memorial party in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood early Sunday.
Chicago police charged Marciano White, 37, with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon in connection with the shooting.
Police said he was seen leaving the location clutching a bag across his body. As officers attempted to approach White, he allegedly attempted to elude the stop.
White was found in possession of a firearm and placed into custody in the 1100 block of West 57th Street, police said.
There’s no word at this time if other charges will be filed.
The shooting happened at 12:35 a.m. Sunday inside a residence in the 5700 block of South May.
It stemmed from a dispute at a house party that was “given in memorial of a subject slain in April,” Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said at a news conference Sunday.
That person was Lonell Irvin, 22, who was killed in April when he tried to steal a car in the Loop, police said.
The victims range in age between 16 and 48 and suffered “different and various gunshot wounds to their bodies.”
Four were initially transported in critical condition. A 16-year-old boy was been stabilized, but is listed in serious condition after suffering a gunshot wound to the back.
Here's a list of the victims' ages and conditions, according to Chicago police.
- Male, 25, gunshot wound to the buttocks and upper right thigh, good condition.
- Male, 20, gunshot wound to the chest and arm pit, good condition.
- Male, 20, gunshot wound to the left thigh, stable condition.
- Male, 27, gunshot wound to the right leg, good condition.

- Male,16, gunshot wound to the back, serious condition.
- Female, 29, gunshot wound to the leg, stable condition.
- Male, 48, gunshot wound to the right foot, good condition.
- Male, 20, gunshot wound to the left foot, good condition.
12 out of the 13 victims reportedly remain hospitalized.
16th Ward Ald. Stephanie Coleman is concerned for the neighborhood after the shooting.
“I’m concerned for our children,” Coleman said. “For our seniors on that block.”
"I heard the sounds of people running and screaming and come to find out at the intersection here," neighbor Terrance Daneily said. "A young lady was on the curb, she was bleeding.”
Sunday morning, Mayor Lightfoot held a press conference urging witnesses to come forward.
"Somebody inside that room knows exactly who the shooters were and we need them to step forward and provide that information," she said. "Solving disputes with a gun is never, never the right answer."
Police described the shooting as an “isolated incident" and said it is not believed to be gang-related. They do have video of the incident from POD cameras. They are upping patrols in the district through next weekend because of the warmer weather.
The mayor is urging witnesses to provide more information for Chicago police.
