5 People Shot, 1 Killed, In Dining Tent At Pancake House In Morgan Park

CHICAGO (CBS) — Five people were shot Sunday afternoon – and one of them was killed – while dining outside at a pancake house in Morgan Park.

As CBS 2’s Steven Graves reported, the mass shooting happened around 2 p.m., an hour before closing, at the Lumes Pancake House at 11601 S. Western Ave.

The adults were shot as they ate outside under a tent the restaurant had set up, according to the police and fire departments. Earlier reports had said six people were shot, but police later said it was five people.

Police said the person who was killed was a 31-year-old man and was the target of the shooting. A white-colored sport-utility vehicle pulled up and someone fired shots as he ate, police said.

Meanwhile, a 43-year-old woman suffered gunshots to the abdomen and buttocks, and a 32-year-old man and woman were each shot in the thigh. All were stabilized at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

A 30-year-old woman was also shot in the foot and was in good condition at OSF Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Evergreen Park, police said.

A waitress described chaos as shots rang out. She said a lot of young people had just sat down to eat.

“Everybody started coming running in, and they were in the back in they were shooting. The guys came in the tent and started shooting everybody in the tent,” the waitress said. “We had to run inside and two people got shot.”
