CHICAGO — A shooting at a gathering on Chicago's South Side early Friday left one person dead and seven others wounded, police said.

Conditions of the wounded ranged from fair to critical.

No one was immediately taken into custody, police said, but several weapons were recovered. The shooting is under investigation.

On Thursday in Chicago, a police officer was wounded during a shootout with a suspected shoplifter, according to law enforcement officials. The suspect was pronounced dead after he was taken to a hospital.

The officer's shooting in the Brighton Park neighborhood marked the fourth injury of a Chicago police officer in less than two weeks.
