ENGLEWOOD — A man has been charged with a felony after police arrested him near a shooting that left 13 people wounded in Englewood.

The shooting began around 12:30 a.m. Sunday at a house party in the 5700 block of South May Street, Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller said during a news conference early Sunday.

The party was a memorial celebration for Lonell Irvin, 22, who was fatally shot by a motorist he allegedly attempted to carjack in April, according to the Tribune.

Waller said there was a fight at the party and shots were fired. As people began to run from the gunfire out of the home, more shots rang out. Police pod cameras captured the gunfire, and Waller said two shooters were shown on camera firing at people seemingly “randomly” as they fled the home.

Officers responding to the shooting saw Marciano White, 37, leaving the area while holding a bag to his body, according to a Chicago Police alert. The officers went up to White and he tried to escape.

White was taken into custody and did have a gun, police said. He was charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

White was scheduled to appear in Bond Court on Monday.

Police did not say if they thought White had fired any shots during the incident.

Victims of the shooting ranged in age from 16 to 48 years old, with four of the victims in critical condition, police said.

The 16-year-old was among the critically wounded with gunshot wounds to his lower back and chest, and one of the suspects — a 25-year-old man — had also been shot, police said.

A 20-year-old man was in serious condition with a gunshot wound to his chest at Saint Bernard Hospital.
