The injured include a 21-year-old man shot in the groin, a 25-year-old woman shot in the arm and leg, a 20-year-old man shot in the right side, a 19-year-old woman shot in the right leg, a 22-year-old woman with unknown injuries, a 21-year-old man shot in the left leg and a 23-year-old man shot in the chest and hand.

A group of unidentified shooters opened fire on people at a block party around 3:45 a.m. Sunday, killing 33-year-old Demetrius Flower and injuring eight others.

Flower’s father, Keith Flowers, said he was the second son he has lost to violence, according to CBS Chicago.
