Two gunmen opened fire at a house party in Joliet, Illinois (southwest of Chicago) killing two people and injuring more than a dozen. The Will County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the shooting occurred early Sunday morning at an event attended by an estimated 200 people, when gunfire erupted near a DJ booth in the backyard.
According to witnesses, one of the men — described as a Hispanic male wearing a red hoodie — fired from an elevated porch overlooking the crowd. The second shooter was described as a light-skinned man wearing a ski mask and yellow hoodie. Two people were pronounced dead at the scene, and remain unidentified. Four others were taken to local hospitals; additional details about the incident were not immediately available.
The suspects remain at large as of press time.
