Five men were stabbed early Friday, and at least two of them seriously wounded early Friday during a gang fight on the North Side.
The five men were stabbed about 12:55 a.m. during a fight that broke out in a bar in the 4100 block of West Montrose Avenue, police said.
The fight was between members of the Latin Kings and the Insane Deuces, police said, adding that a crowbar and “large knife” were used.
A 24-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the lower back, and a 19-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the upper right shoulder, police said. Both were taken in serious condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
A 23-year-old man was taken in “stable” condition with stab wounds in the stomach to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. A 22-year-old was also taken to Stroger in an unidentified condition, and police did not immediately know where he’d been stabbed.
A 22-year-old man was stabbed in the leg and taken in “stable” condition to Swedish Covenant Hospital.
Area North detectives are investigating.
