Chicago police say six people suffered gunshot wounds when someone fired into a crowd outside a church where mourners were gathered.

One man suffered serious injuries. Chicago police officer Kevin Kilmer said five others were in good condition at hospitals.

Kilmer says people were at the church Saturday morning for a funeral or wake.

He says a gunman approached an "intended target" in a group outside the church and fired multiple shots. Kilmer says the man then opened fire at the crowd as he left the scene.

Police have no one in custody. They say the shootings are believed to be gang related.
