About three hours later, police say a woman was killed in a parking ramp at 9th Street and LaSalle Avenue. A man, who had also been shot, was found about a block away. Investigators say the gunman took off before officers arrived, but they don't believe the public is in danger.

And at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, gunshots rang out at a house party on West Broadway near Penn Avenue. Police say the scene was "exceptionally chaotic." The three gunshot victims are expected to survive. Investigators are looking for the person or people responsible.
