Eric Swanson, deputy chief of the DuPage County sheriff’s office, told a news conference that police “heard multiple shots and reacted to the large crowd.” According to preliminary testimonies from witnesses and victims, at least 20 people were injured.

“So far, one victim has died,” Swanson said, adding that two people were in critical condition. According to him, the injured were taken to nearby hospitals. The names and ages of the victims are unknown. No arrests have been reported. The motive for the shooting is being investigated. Witnesses described a scene of panic as people ran in all directions, trying to hide from the barrage of gunfire, ABC Chicago WLS-TV reported.

The shooting came hours after two people were killed and three injured at the Beyond Wonderland electronic dance music festival in Washington state. Police said the suspect fired “randomly into the crowd” at a campsite in the small town of Gorge, about 170 miles east of Seattle, according to NBC News.

There were 307 mass shootings in the US in 2023, according to Gun Violence, a nonprofit organization that tracks incidents and defines a mass shooting as a single incident in which at least four people are shot in addition to the shooter.
