Officers arrived at Fullerton and Lake Shore Drive to find six victims just after 3 a.m.

Evidence technicians found multiple shell casings at the scene just steps from the Theater on the Lake.

Police said a person in each group started shooting.

Police have license plate reader cameras along the lake front, but a suspect has not yet been identified.

This shooting was just one of several shootings that happened overnight across the city. Nineteen people were shot and two killed.
