The incident happened just before midnight in the 5400 block of S. Paulina in the Back of the Yards/New City area on the city's southwest side.

Police said a group was gathered on the above mentioned block when unknown offenders fired approximately 25-30 gunshots and a total of four male victims were struck.

  • Victim #1: 27-year-old shot in the stomach. Critical condition.
