Police: 6 injured by gunfire near Chicago church
CHICAGO — Chicago police say six people suffered gunshot wounds when someone fired into a crowd outside a church where mourners were gathered.
Police say none of the injuries from the Saturday morning shooting outside Gospel Truth Life Changing Ministries on the city’s West Side were considered life-threatening. Police believe the shootings were gang related.
Chicago police officer Kevin Kilmer says people were at the church for a funeral or wake.
He says a gunman approached an “intended target” in a group outside the church and fired multiple shots. Kilmer says the man then opened fire at the crowd as he left the scene.
Kilmer says one man was in serious condition. Three other men and two women were in good condition.
Police have no one in custody.
