Most of the people in the South Side park at the time were gang members, the Chicago Tribune reports, and most of Hadiya's group scattered after the shooting. The teens are not cooperating with police, and the suspect is still at large. The homicide was one of 42 in Chicago so far this month, the Tribune adds, making it the worst January for homicides since 2002—with two days to go. More than 500 people were murdered in Chicago last year.
