    Chicago Police continue searching for the person who opened fire Sunday on a group outside a South Side liquor store, killing two and injuring five.

    Seven people were hit around 6:45 p.m. while standing on the corner near 79th and Essex, police said. Two men were found dead, one inside the store and one outside on the street.

    Five teens, ranging in age from 13 to 16 years old, were injured, police said. Four of them were listed in serious to fair condition, but a 14-year-old shot in the stomach was taken to Comer's Children's Hospital in critical condition.

    Witnesses described a very chaotic scene after a car pulled up and opened fire Sunday evening. Sources on the scene told NBCChicago two men between the ages of 17 and 25 were in the beige-colored car.

    The intended target was not known.

    A 19-year-old was killed along with a 62-year-old man identified as Gregory Glinsey. Friends said Glinsey ran to the store on an errand when he was caught in the crossfire.

    It's not known whether the condition of the 14-year-old shot in the stomach has improved Monday. The others teens taken to area hospitals with gunshot wounds to the legs are expected to recover.
