20 injured, 1 killed in massive June 19 celebration in Illinois

At least one person was killed and 20 were injured after gunfire erupted Sunday morning during a massive June 19 celebration held in the Chicago suburb of Willowbrook.

At least 200 teenagers and young adults were gathered in a parking lot for a June 19 celebration when dozens of gunshots rang out around 12:30 a.m., according to WSL-TV.

When the smoke from the guns cleared, 20 people had been shot, including one fatally, DuPage County Sheriff’s Office officials said.

Two others were in critical condition, fire officials told WBBM-TV.

Most of those shot suffered what authorities called “abrasion wounds”, authorities reportedly said.

The shooting took place around 12:30 p.m. in a Route 83 parking lot near Honey Suckle Lane, Tri-State Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Joe Ostrander told local outlets.

Gunfire erupted during a massive June 19 celebration in a Chicago suburb overnight.

The police remained on the spot until the wee hours of the morning.

“It was supposed to be like a celebration of June 19; we just started to hear gunshots so we went down until they stopped. They just kept going. After that, we literally dispersed,” witness Markeshia Avery said, according to the ABC affiliate.

A massive police presence remained at the scene until the early hours of the morning. Debris and rubbish were left at the scene after the massive party turned violent.

“We were all just outside and, next thing you know, gunshots kept going off; everyone ran and it was chaos,” witness Craig Lotcie said.

Police have not said what they believe led to the nighttime shooting.

It’s unclear what led to the shooting, and local authorities did not immediately respond to a Post investigation.

Their investigation is ongoing.
