"There were three people walking. Two people had just purchased some food, and a car pulls up, apparently a white car, and just opened fire. Just an insane amount of shots," said Pastor Donovan Price.

The 29-year-old man was shot multiple times and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he died. His name has not yet been released.

The 27-year-old man was shot in the back and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in good condition. The 49-year-old woman was shot in the arm and taken to University of Chicago Hospital in serious condition.

Witnesses told ABC7 that the bullets were fired from a vehicle driving by the restaurant. Officials also said that shell casings were found inside the McDonald's.

Pastor Price, who has a church nearby, came to the scene after hearing shots were fired.

"On the last warm day of the year, right after the elections, so we can see if some of these people are going to do what they say," Price said. "And we got a good example today. It's a violent day in the city and definitely a violent, just crazy day while people are trying to come home from work."

Police have taped off the entire restaurant as they investigate. So far, no one is in custody.
