At least a dozen people were shot, with two fatalities, after a shooting early Sunday morning in South Chicago.

According to reports, gunfire broke out before 5 a.m. after several people got into a fight at a party. Two people were pronounced dead at the scene while the rest were described as being in “serious or critical condition.”

First responders said there was still a lot of running and screaming when they first arrived.

“The scene was very chaotic,” Greg Stinnett of the Chicago Fire Department stated. “Even when I arrived, you could hear the chatter on the radio. It was quite chaotic. Our crews did a tremendous job getting their arms around it, sorting out the casualties and the victims, and we were able to triage, treat and transport everybody effectively.”

So far in 2021, authorities have responded to nearly 400-shootings in the democrat-controlled city as of March 7, which is a 31 percent increase over the same period in 2020.
