CHICAGO (AP) — A spokesman for a Chicago nightclub where seven people were shot and wounded during a fight at a rap concert is offering his condolences to the victims of what he calls a "cowardly act."

In a news release, Sean Howard says that Mr. G's Supper Club and Entertainment Center is cooperating with the investigation.

Chicago police spokesman John Mirabelli says a fight broke out and three men pulled guns and began firing around 1:15 a.m. Thursday at Mr. G's. Seven people were hit.

He says the shooting in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood appears to have been gang related. No arrests have been made.

All seven of those shot were listed in stable condition at hospitals.
