- Developing now, never before seen video of the moments after a mass shooting in the Wrightwood neighborhood that left one dead, seven others injured. You can see people running away. CBS News Meredith Barack joins us live from police headquarters. Meredith, you've learned the group was together because of a previous shooting.

MEREDITH BARACK: Brad, we learned people were gathered for a celebration of life for a man who was a victim of gun violence himself. But who owns the business, and why the shooting happened at all are still two questions we're trying to get answers for.

- I'm tired. I'm so tired of this. I really am. I am. The guns, the killing needs to stop.

- A mother's plea.

- I'm just, right now, my heart is just really heavy.

- Michelle Chambers says, her 28-year-old son shown here in his hospital bed will be OK after being shot here at 2515 West 79th Street in Wrightwood.

MICHELLE CHAMBERS: They was here having a good time. They were getting ready to leave. A young lady came through the door. She looked, came in, and looked around. She stepped out, and shots just started.

- This video shows the moment the shooting began. A 26-year-old man was killed, seven others injured. Chambers says, she came by this afternoon to find her son's car. Earlier in the day, our cameras captured several vehicles at the scene riddled with bullet holes. The windows, where the party was held, left a damaged too.

- I'm not familiar with this place. I guess this probably was a place they were rented out just for the event they was having.

- A woman who asked to remain anonymous tells us, this place is a problem, and she wants to see something done about it.

- They do a lot of arguing, and fighting, and stuff like that. But it's never been a shooting or nothing like that. This is the first time.

- There is currently no active business license for the location. Yet, several people said, a dance company often utilizes the space.

Chicago police say, they've recovered multiple weapons at the scene. But so far, no arrests have been made. Reporting live outside CPD headquarters, I'm Meredith Barack, CBS 2 News.
