August 20, 2013 Chicago Illinois (FOX32NEWS) – At least two of the five people shot near an Uptown bus stop Monday evening have gang ties, a law enforcement source said.

The most seriously wounded, a 21-year-old man, remained “very critical” and on a ventilator, after a gunshot wound to the head, the source said.

The victims were all shot at 5:57 p.m. Monday at Sheridan and Wilson, authorities said. That corner where the shooting happened is on a Chicago Public Schools “Safe Passage” route for schoolchildren.

Chicago police initially reported that the 21-year-old man was dead after suffering a gunshot wound to the head. However, early Tuesday, police said the man was, in fact, alive. He remained on life support Tuesday morning at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, authorities said.

A 32-year-old man was shot in the ankle, buttocks and forearms. He was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital and listed in serious condition, authorities said. A 26-year-old man was shot in both arms and his left leg. He was taken to Illinois Masonic and also listed in serious condition. A 58-year-old man was shot in the hand, and taken to Weiss, where he was in stable condition. A 44-year-old man was shot in the knee and thigh. He was later released from Weiss, a source said.

The shooting happened outside the Uptown Baptist Church. Senior church pastor Michael Allen said in a tweet that about 20 gunshots were fired outside during the church’s Monday night meal for the homeless. “Blood pools at church steps. Pray for us,” Allen said on Twitter.

About 175 people were eating tacos in the church when the shots rang out, said church volunteer Bill Shoemaker. To keep people calm, one church official told people the loud noises were fireworks.

The shooting happened across the street from a crowded McDonald’s restaurant. Evidence markers dotted the street near a sidewalk covered in blood and shattered glass from a damaged bus shelter. The glass remained on the sidewalk early Tuesday morning.

Scott Fishman, a photographer who lives in the neighborhood, was nearby and heard the gunshots but didn’t want to get too close to the aftermath.

“I’ve lived in this neighborhood for four years. I know the difference between fireworks and gunfire . . . and I wasn’t going out of my way to see anyone’s brains and blood on the sidewalk,” Fishman said.

Fishman and others who live nearby said that the corner where the shooting happened, which is monitored by a police camera, is regularly occupied by gang-bangers.

No one was in custody Tuesday morning. and police could offer no information on the gunman.
