Four men were shot this morning in Chicago's Park Manor neighborhood near a South Side night club.

The shootings occurred outside of the Laristos Night Club at 606 E. 75th Street about 12:50 a.m., police said.

Previously, Chicago police news affairs said that only two men had been shot. But later reports said that a 17-year-old from Dolton was shot in the right calf, an 18-year-old from Chicago was shot in the right calf, a 19 -year-old from Harvey was shot in the left thigh, and a 25-year-old from Chicago was shot in the right foot, police said.

The men were standing outside of the night club when they reported being shot, police said. Police recovered numerous shell casings near the shooting but no one was in custody, officials said.

  1. This is sad event that needs to be addressed immediately. The management of Laristos needs to step up their screening and establish a smoking area in the rear and not the front of the business. I can understand why this happened because the south suburbs have said enough and have closed or are in process of closing the larger nightclubs that cater to African Americans and those patrons are coming into the city. I think the Alderman needs to give them an ultimatum to clean it up or close it down because they had to address several other issues with Laristos (loitering, noise, and trash). We know our community is not a ghetto and I never hear about the violence that happens at northside nightclubs.
