CHICAGO — A Halloween night mass shooting left as many as 14 people injured on Chicago’s West Side, authorities said.

According to WLS-TV and WBBM-TV, the drive-by shooting happened about 9:30 p.m. Monday near the intersection of Polk Street and California Avenue. Chicago police superintendent David Brown said video from the scene showed at least two suspects opening fire “randomly” from a vehicle into a crowd on the corner, striking up to 14 people.





The victims, who suffered non-life-threatening to critical injuries, included three children, ages 3, 11 and 13, the news outlets reported. A car also struck someone in the crowd, Brown said.

Brown added that investigators have not determined a motive or arrested anyone in connection with the incident, according to the news outlets. Although some members of the crowd had gathered for a vigil, the shooting did not appear to be linked to the event, Brown said.

No further details, including descriptions of the suspects and vehicle, were immediately available.
