Chicago police are on the hunt for suspects in last night’s shooting that wounded 13 people in a park on the city’s South Side. The youngest victim — a 3-year-old boy — remains in critical condition. Witnesses reported the bullets were fired from a passing car.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel denounced the shooting in several statements posted on Twitter:

Earlier today, Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy said the incident appears to be gang-related. So far, no suspects are in custody.

“We’re talking to a number of people right now. Obviously, we have a ton of investigators working, interviewing everybody who was at the scene, interviewing the victims, interviewing witnesses, pulling video from places where we could find it.”

— Garry McCarthy, Chicago Superintendent of Police
