Several people were taken to the hospital after a “female offender” opened fire with a BB gun Wednesday in a North Side Starbucks, Chicago police said.
Officers responded to a “mental health disturbance” in the 5300 block of North Clark Street about 3:23 p.m. in the Andersonville neighborhood, police said. Police said the female fired shots from a “pellet gun” but were not immediately certain anyone was injured.
Police later said “several victims” were struck and taken to St. Francis Hospital in nearby Evanston.
Starbucks did not immediately respond to request for comment on the incident.
No other information was immediately available.
