According to US local media in Chicago,  a dozen of people have been killed or injured in a shooting in the state of Illinois.

According to ABC news, Chicago police officers responded just before 5:45 a.m. to the intersection of 62nd and Morgan streets for a reported shooting.

Chicago police said there was an argument inside a home in the 6200-block of South Morgan before the shooting took place.
