2 gunmen open fire at Chicago basketball court, at least 13 wounded, incl 3yo — RT USA.

Chicago police say two gunmen attacked a crowd on a park basketball court, with at least 13 people injured in the shooting, including three-year-old, their conditions from serious to critical. The gunmen haven’t been taken into custody yet.

Chicago Fire Department officials report the child is in critical condition.

“They hit the light pole next to me, but I ducked down and ran into the house,” Julian Harris, uncle of the wounded child, said. “They’ve been coming round here looking for people to shoot every night, just gang-banging stuff. It’s what they do.”

A witness at the scene told the Chicago Tribune that three police officers carried the child to an ambulance.

“I didn’t hear any sounds from the child,” the witness said.

The aunt of the boy who was shot told local reporters that her brother was killed on Labor Day at the beginning of September in Chicago, too. It’s her second relative affected by gun violence this month.

Two other victims were also in critical condition, officials say.
