Chicago shooting

Up to 13 people were shot in Chicago Thursday night, including a 3-year-old, according to various news agencies.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office told a Chicago Sun-Times reporter that no deaths were reported.

Officials said the child and two other victims were in critical condition.

The shootings happened at about 10:15 p.m. at a basketball court in the city's Back of the Yard's neighborhood on the South Side, according to the Sun-Times.

A witness, Julian Harris, who said his 3-year-old nephew was wounded in the cheek, told the Sun-Times: "They hit the light pole next to me, but I ducked down and ran into the house." He said that gunmen fired at him from a grey sedan.
