CHICAGO — One man died and four others were wounded following a shooting Tuesday in Back of the Yards.
At around 4:45 p.m., officers responded to the area of 48th and Ada on the report of multiple people shot.
Authorities said one 19-year-old man was killed and two others, 16 and 18, were critically injured following a shooting. Another pair of a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old were shot and were listed in good condition.
The victims were transported to Mt. Sinai, Stroger, University of Chicago and St. Bernard Hospital.
During a press conference Tuesday, CPD said officers were met by a “hostile crowd” and the motive was “specific gang members targeting one another.”
A vehicle fled the scene and crashed several blocks away, police said. Two weapons were recovered and a third was recovered at the scene, CPD said.
Police are currently looking for the suspected occupants of the vehicle that crashed.
