CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities say two people were killed and a third person was critically injured in a shooting on Chicago’s West Side.

Chicago police say the shooting happened at about 10:40 a.m. Wednesday in the East Garfield Park neighborhood. Chicago Police Deputy Chief Al Nagode said four people were standing in the area of an open-air drug market when two gunmen left a four-door vehicle and opened fire. The gunmen got back into the vehicle and fled. They remain at large.

Nagode said at least 30 rounds were fired. Neighbors said it sounded like a machine gun.

The victims weren’t immediately identified. Police said two men were pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say a third man was critically wounded with a gunshot to the chest and taken to a hospital.
