On Halloween night, a mass shooting on Chicago’s West Side injured at least 14 people, including several children.

In a statement to Fox News, the Chicago Police Department confirmed that the shooting occurred near South California Avenue and West Polk Street.

A 3-year-old, an 11-year-old and a 13-year-old were among those injured in the shooting. Police said the rest were adults. In addition to the shooting victims, officials said a person was struck by a car.

No further details were provided by the police about the person who was hit.

At least one car was seen on the pod camera video, and police believe two shooters opened fire on the crowd.

As of now, no suspects have been arrested in the drive-by attack and the motive for the attack is unclear.

The shooting has so far not caused any deaths. Police only say that victims are in “various conditions.”

There weren’t enough emergency vehicles on hand to accommodate an injured child, according to a bystander who was interviewed by FOX 32 Chicago.

Eyewitness: “We picked up another girl, about 13, and we brought her to that ambulance, but the ambulance driver said, ‘No, we can’t bring her in, you have people worse.’ So we put her on the bumper.”

According to the same eyewitness, he found a little girl with a bullet wound under her knee and took her to a nearby hospital. He also saw a man who had been shot in the head.

“They said he had been shot in the head, and he had blood everywhere,” the man said.

The police have swarmed the area of the shooting with units and actively pursuing idendtification of the shooters and their vehicle.
