At least 14 people were injured, including several children, in a mass shooting on the West Side of Chicago on Halloween night.
U Chicago Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that the shooting happened in the area of South California Avenue and West Polk Street.
Police said at a press conference that among the injured were a 3-year-old, 11-year-old and 13-year-old. Police said the rest of the shooting victims were adults. In addition to the victims injured in the shooting, authorities said one person was also hit by a car.
Police did not provide further information about the person hit by the car.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said pod camera video showed at least one car, and they believe two shooters opened fire on a crowd standing at the intersection for a vigil.
Police said the drive-by attack lasted just 3 seconds and the shooters fired randomly into the crowd. Brown said no suspects have been arrested and the motive for the attack is unclear.
So far, police said no deaths had been reported as a result of the shooting. Police said only that the victims were under “various conditions”.
One viewer said FOX 32 Chicago that he started helping injured people, but there were not enough emergency vehicles to accommodate an injured child.
“We picked up another girl, a girl, about 13 years old, and we took her to that ambulance,” the eyewitness said. “But the ambulance driver said, ‘No, we can’t take her because you have worse people.’ So we just have it sitting on the bumper.”

The same eyewitness said he found a girl with a bullet wound below the knee and took her to a nearby hospital. He also saw an adult man who had been shot in the head.
“He was on the ground and they said he was shot in the head, and he had blood everywhere,” the man said.
