Security guard killed, 4 others shot after altercation outside club on Chicago's South Side

A security guard was killed and four others were wounded in a shooting outside of a club in Gresham Sunday morning.

At about 12:48 a.m., two security guards were working the front door of the club in the 8300 block of South Halsted when they engaged in a verbal altercation with an unidentified offender, police said.

The offender was refused entrance to the establishment, produced a firearm and shot multiple times before fleeing the scene.

One of the guards, 40, was shot multiple times and the other guard, 42, was hit in the back twice and in his thigh, police said.

Both were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the 40-year-old later died, police said. The 42-year-old was listed in serious condition, police said.


Three other male victims who were standing near the altercation were also struck by gunfire. 

Two males were each shot in the leg and self-transported to Little Company of Mary for treatment.

A 21-year-old male was shot in the chin and transported to University of Chicago in good condition.

There is no one in custody as Area Two detectives continue to investigate.
