There was a huge police presence just after 1am when three people were shot.
The space manager told CBS 2’s Sabrina Franza that she had rented the venue to a woman who was hosting a memorial for a family member when members of that woman’s group began shooting at each other.
A 29-year-old man, a 30-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were all taken to Masonic Medical Center in Illinois and are expected to be fine.

CBS 2 reviewed the city’s active business licenses and found no business or event space listings for the venue, though the manager said the space’s purpose was clear with its owner.
Meanwhile, the police are still looking for the person responsible for the shooting.
This is the second such shooting in an event space that may not have been recorded in Ward 45 in the past two months.
