Three men and one woman were injured in the shooting, and were all transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition, police said.

Police said two 29-year-old men and one 32-year-old man were shot in the legs. A 29-year-old woman was shot in the ear.

Local leaders said the violence is disheartening.

"Anything you do something that you should be naturally able to do - get something to eat, enjoy yourselves, whatever - then, death, shooting," said Pastor Donovan Price. "We just need to stop this."

There is no one in custody and Area One Detectives are investigating.
