UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill. (WLS) -- One person is dead and two others were injured after a shooting at a University Park Housing Complex Friday.

Police said gunfire erupted inside the Maple Leaf Apartments in the 700 block of Burr Oak Lane around 3 p.m.

A 27-year-old man, whose identity is being withheld, was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital, University Park police said.

Two other unidentified gunshot victims in their 20s are also being treated at an area hospital. Their status is unknown at this time.
