A suspect was arrested Sunday after he was seen leaving where 13 people were shot, police said.
茄枝视频Marciano White, 37, was accused of illegally using a weapon as a convicted felon, the Chicago Police Department said in a statement.
After officers were called to the party, where a memorial was being held for a man killed earlier this year, they saw White leaving the scene with a bag, police said, and he tried to escape when officers stopped him.
White was scheduled to appear in court Monday. It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

茄枝视频Waller described three different shooting scenes at the residential location in the city's Englewood neighborhood.

茄枝视频Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who met with victims at the University of Chicago Medical Center, pleaded with people to put down their guns,.
茄枝视频"A lot of young people feel they’re at risk if they don’t carry a gun, but I’m telling them that they are if they do,” she said. “When you fire a weapon, you’re inflicting life-long harm not just on yourself but everyone that’s affected by gun violence."
Lightfoot urged witnesses to "overcome their fears" and provide information to authorities. Then, she said, police can track down those "responsible for this terrible act of cowardice.”
