CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities say two people were fatally shot and seven more were wounded when a man involved in a fight opened fire in downtown Chicago.
The shooting happened about 10:40 p.m. Thursday near a McDonald’s restaurant not far from the city's famed Magnificent Mile shopping district.
Police say one person was taken into custody and a weapon recovered.
They say a woman who was among those trying to flee was critically injured when she fell onto a third rail at a nearby subway station.
Police haven't released the names or ages of the dead. The shooting comes amid a surge in deadly violence in Chicago in recent years.
The city tightened a curfew for young people following a fatal shooting last weekend in downtown Millennium Park.
