As the temperatures heat up, so does the violence in the South Chicago neighborhood.
According to police dispatch, one gunshot victim was taken to Stroger Hospital and the other victim was taken to North Western Memorial Hospital.
A motive for the violence has not been disclosed.
At approximately 6:14 p.m., a shooting occurred in a west alley on the 8000 block of South Manistee Avenue. It's unclear if anyone was shot, but investigators combed the alley for shell casings.
One source said the Manistee shooting was in retaliation for today's shootings on Escanaba.
Except for the fact that the gunman was wearing a mask, few details were given regarding his description.
Later in the evening, around 6:54 p.m., police were keeping an eye on a location at 8519 South Muskegon Avenue. Apparently, someone was shot and killed there last night, and a large crowd was gathered for a prayer vigil.
