Two people are dead and seven others were injured in a shooting at a McDonald’s in Downtown Chicago.
The incident occurred just after 10:40 p.m. Thursday outside of the restaurant near Chicago Avenue and State Street.
Authorities have since taken a suspect into custody and recovered the gun used at the scene.
While not many details have been released about the incident, Mayor Lori Lightfoot claimed too many teenagers now have access to guns.
“Two young people lost their lives for no good reason,” Lightfoot said. “Teenagers have been fussing and fighting, probably since the beginning of time. The difference now is too many of them have guns, and that’s exactly what happened last night.”
Authorities have not released the names of the victims or the suspect.
