5 were taken near the Lincoln Park Zoo in Stockton, CPD said

CHICAGO (WLS) — At least five people were injured in the shooting in the city's Lincoln Park neighborhood, according to Chicago police.

This happened Saturday morning in the 1900 block of N. Stockton, not far from the Lincoln Park Zoo.

Four men self-transported to Northwestern Hospital where they are now listed in critical condition, Chicago police said.

An 18-year-old woman was also taken to hospital and is in good condition, police said.

Investigators were still at the scene this morning just steps from where the farmer's market was also taking place.

“Cops and politicians will say ‘be aware of your neighborhood if you're walking around town,” said Lincoln Park resident Chris Huff. “You don't have to live your life looking back all the time. That's what bothers me the most and affects us the most”

It is not yet clear what caused the shooting. Police said the victims were not cooperating with the investigation.
