Shooting in Chicago’s downtown leaves at least two dead

Chicago police arrested a suspect in a fatal shooting that escalated from a fight outside a fast food restaurant and spilled on to a nearby train line, authorities and local media said on Friday (May 20).

At least two people died and ten were wounded after gunfire erupted on Thursday (May 19) night outside a McDonald’s near the city’s Magnificent Mile shopping section, authorities said. A gun was recovered at the crime scene, according to Chicago police spokesperson Tom Ahern.

Authorities said an investigation was ongoing. They had yet to release details of the victims.

The wounded were taken to local hospitals in “serious to critical condition,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot promised to take additional steps to address “long-standing concerns along that block.”

Lightfoot earlier banned unaccompanied minors from the city’s Millennium Park after 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday following a deadly shooting there involving teenagers last weekend.

Like several other U.S. cities, Chicago has witnessed a surge of deadly violence since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020.
