Two people were killed and eight injured in a shooting in Chicago

Police in Chicago report two dead and eight wounded after a shooting near a fast food restaurant. Bystanders scattered after the shooting.

An 18-year-old witness told police the shooting appears to have been the result of a fight outside the restaurant. Police did not immediately clarify what led to the shooting.

The shooting happened about 10:40 p.m. Thursday near a McDonald’s on the city’s Near North Side, a few blocks from the city’s Magnificent Mile shopping district. One person was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered, police said in statement.

“When the fight first started, we were right next to them,” Deonna Jackson, 18, told the Chicago Sun-Times. ”We had to run because I didn’t want anyone to swing on me.”
