Five Shot During Party At Kankakee Banquet Hall

(CBS) -- Five people were shot at a party at a Kankakee banquet hall early Sunday morning, according to Kankakee Police.

Police responded to a report of shots fired at Guzman's Sports Banquet Hall in the 600 block of E. Court St. and encountered a large group of people fleeing the building.

Officers located one person inside who had been shot and after assisting in first aid, the victim was transported to the hospital by the Kankakee Fire Department. Four other victims were located at area hospitals who left before officers arrived at the banquet hall. Two of the wounded were listed in serious but stable condition and the other three were in fair to good condition.

The banquet hall was rented for a family reunion, but police say it was a party featuring entertainers that was charging for admission. Approximately 80-100 people were inside at the time of the shooting, police said.

Police say that they have identified at least two guns at the party after reviewing surveillance footage.
