Monday, May 8, 2017

Two people have died and eight have sustained injuries in a suspected gang incident in Chicago. 

The 10 people were at a memorial in Brighton Park, on the southwest side of the city, for an individual who had died in a fatal shooting earlier that day.

The condition of the eight injured people is not yet known, but they have been hospitalised for treatment. 

The incident is thought to be gang-related, but specific details are still emerging.

Chicago has been dealing with gang-related violent incidents for years, leading to an increased number of deaths in the city's poorest neighbourhoods.
