CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago police spokesman says several people have been shot in a park located in the city's Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Officer Amina Greer says the shooting occurred shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday. However, she said investigators haven't determined how many people were injured in the shooting.

According to Greer, several ambulances are at the scene. However, it wasn't immediately known where the victims were being taken.

An hour after the shooting, the Cook County medical examiner's office said none of its staff were being called to the scene.
