CHICAGO — In a night of terror that has left the city of Chicago in shock, at least 15 people were gunned down at a Halloween party on the West Side early Sunday, according to the Chicago police. The incident unfolded just past 1 a.m. on South Pulaski Road in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

The party, held in the 1200 block of the street, was celebrating Halloween when violence erupted. A male suspect was observed actively shooting by the responding officers. He subsequently attempted to escape on foot but was apprehended a short distance away, with a handgun being recovered. The suspect has yet to be identified by authorities.

Of those injured, six women and nine men, aged between 26 and 53, were rushed to local hospitals. Two victims, a 26-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man, were critically wounded and taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital. The condition of other victims is believed to be stable.

An investigation into the shooting continues, and the police have yet to confirm any fatalities related to this tragic event.
