7 shot during rap video release party at Gresham supper club

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Seven people were shot early Thursday when gunfire erupted inside a South Side nightclub during a rap video release party.

Police said three people pulled out handguns and started firing shots both inside and outside Mr. G's Supper Club and Entertainment Center at 87th and Ashland about 1:13 a.m.

The Auburn Gresham neighborhood shooting was gang-related, said police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro. A promotional poster indicated rap artists Nino, King Samson and Lil Mouse performed at the event.

A YouTube video for the Lil Mouse song "I'm 4real" shows the rapper and his crew wearing apparel emblazoned with the phrase "no talking" – an apparent reference to the no-snitch code that governs much of the city's gang violence. The song lyrics feature gratuitous allusions to gun violence.

Three people -- a 19-year-old woman, a 21-year-old man and a 23-year-old man-- were driven to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with gunshot wounds, Alfaro said. The 19-year-old woman was shot seven times, according to dispatch reports. All three were listed in "stable" condition.

Additionally, two men, ages 20 and 21, were in "stable" condition after one man was taken by ambulance and another was driven to Holy Cross Hospital, police said.

Another two men, ages 26 and 36, were also in "stable" condition after being driven to Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Center, Alfaro said.

But police on the scene said the exact number of injured was hard to determine because a handful of the wounded were driven to area hospitals by people they knew.

No one was in custody as Area South detectives were investigating.
