(Reuters) - Six people, two of them
teens, were shot and another person was injured at a laundromat on
Chicago's South Side on Monday evening, officials said.
The shooting took place around 8:05 p.m. local time (9.05 P.m.
ET), said Chicago Police Department spokesman Ron Gaines.
There were no arrests and police were still working to determine the
cause of the shooting, Gaines said. A fire department official had
earlier said seven people were shot.
Three of the injured were transported to area hospitals in serious
to critical condition, including a 14-year old victim, said Larry
Langford, a spokesman for the Chicago Fire Department.
None of the injuries were life-threatening, Gaines said.
Victims were aged 14 to 52 and two were women, Gaines said. Another
victim was 16-years-old, according to Gaines.
