Two people are dead and another eight are wounded following a mass shooting outside a McDonald’s in Chicago, authorities said.
The shooting occurred at about 10:40 p.m. on Thursday by the McDonald’s restaurant in the 800 block of North State Street, which is next to the Chicago Avenue subway station, Chicago police said.
Terrified witnesses screamed and ran away from the scene where 10 people were shot.
A victim had suffered burns, possibly from being injured on the CTA Red Line subway, Chief Juan Hernandez, a spokesperson with the Chicago Fire Department told the Chicago Tribune.
One person was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered, police said in statement without releasing the identities of the two people killed in the shooting.
Details on the conditions of the eight wounded people have also not been released.
‘We walked across the street to the store and next thing we know, people started shooting and everyone just got hit,’ witness Deonna Jackson told ABC 7 Chicago.
‘My first instinct was just run because I have been hit before.’
Additional details about the circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately released. An investigation is ongoing.
