CHICAGO — The two people who were killed in a mass shooting in Brighton Park on Sunday have been identified.
Michael Williams was 21 and lived in the 2600 block of West 25th Street. Adriana Williams was 27 and lived in the 2600 block of West 23rd Street.
They were at a memorial to another man killed earlier in the day when two men opened fire on them, killing the Williams siblings and wounded eight other people.
The attackers were masked and used rifles, police said. They got away in a car after the shooting and no one as in custody. It was the single bloodiest shooting since Sept. 19, 2013, when 13 people were wounded in a shooting at Cornell Square Park.
The shooting was gang-related, police said. Ald. Raymond Lopez (15th) said the incident was possibly the latest episode in a gang war that has raged in the neighborhood since last year. Gang members have used assault weapons — including AK-47s and AR-15s — in shootings in the area.
