There were six people shot on Saturday morning in the city’s Auburn Gresham, according to ABC7Chicago.

The report said an unidentified gunman opened fire into a crowd at about 2:15 a.m.Darryl Martin, a witness of the shooting, told the station that it was a “conversation with bullets; people were shooting it out.”
