Six people were shot Sunday while attending an Easter gathering in a Chicago suburb.

Officials said a group of people were in a garage for an Easter party around 12:30 a.m. in the 1300 block of Jackson Street in far west suburban Montgomery when someone started shooting.

Four men and two women were shot. Five people were transported from the scene and one person was taken to an area hospital by a friend, according to Montgomery Police Chief Daniel Meyers.

It was not immediately clear what their conditions were.

Children were in the home at the time of the shooting, but no children were injured, according to authorities.

Meyers said the residents of the home had not had prior incidents involving shootings or gangs, but noted police plan to look into any activity at the home over the last few weeks.

“This area is pretty quiet,” he said.

Police are searching for a male suspect, Meyers said.

“We’ll continue this [investigation] for days until we have a suspect or someone in custody,” Meyers said.

Police ask that anyone with information on the shooting call area crime stoppers at (630) 892-1000.
