Two people were killed and eight others were injured in a mass shooting near McDonald’s in Chicago, authorities said.

The shooting happened around 10:40 p.m. Thursday near a McDonald’s restaurant on the 800th block of North State Street, located near Chicago Avenue Subway Station, Chicago police said.

Frightened witnesses shouted and fled the scene where 10 people were shot. Eight wounded were taken to nearby hospitals in critical or critical condition, at least one underwent surgery, officials said.

The victim received burns, possibly from injuries in the CTA Red Line subway, said Chicago Tribune chief Juan Hernandez, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department.

One person was taken into custody and a weapon was found, police said in a statement, without revealing the identities of the two killed in the shooting.

One victim was in “serious” condition and the other victims were in critical or critical condition, Hernandez said late Thursday night.

Details of what led to the shooting were not disclosed by police immediately, but a witness, 18-year-old Deona Jackson, said the shooting appears to have occurred because of a brawl near a restaurant.

“When the fight just started, we were close to them,” 18-year-old Deona Jackson told the Chicago Sun-Times. “We had to run away because I didn’t want anyone to attack me.”

Jackson said a group of people started a fight with a man who was with friends.

“We were literally here. The man they ran into, we talked to the people he was with, and it turned out to be some girls.

“We get to 7/11, we turn around and they just start shooting, shoot like crazy.”

She told ABC 7 Chicago: “We were walking across the street to the store and the next thing we know people started firing and everyone just got hit.

“My first instinct was just launched because I had been beaten before.”

Among the chaotic consequences of the shooting, one could hear a woman shouting at a police officer who asked, “What hospital? My brother was shot dead. ”

When paramedics and officers responded on Thursday, a fight broke out across the road from the scene of the shooting between the two people, the Chicago Tribune reported, and some people crossed the police line and argued with officers before pushing them away.

Chicago police said the crime scene was expanded to include the CTA Red Line subway station, where officers searched for weapons they have since found.

Two witnesses said they were walking near McDonald’s when they heard gunshots.

“It was scary,” said one NBC Chicago witness. Because you don’t know what’s going on. I eat here in the subway because it’s close to where I live. I walk down this street and drive past McDonald’s.

“What if something happens while I’m walking down the street? It’s both scary and scary. It makes you feel dangerous, to be honest. ”

Additional details about the circumstances of the shooting were not released immediately. The investigation is ongoing.

The shooting comes amid a surge of deadly violence in the city in recent years. And it comes after a deadly shooting last weekend in central Chicago that killed a teenager and forced the city to step up a curfew for young people as part of an effort to end the violence.
