13 people - some as young as 16 - have been injured in a shooting at a house party in the US city of Chicago.

It happened at around 12:35am at an address on Chicago's South May Street.

Four of those injured are said to be in a critical condition, while the other victims are said to be stable.

CNN reports that the victims range in age from 16 to 48.

Police say two people are being questioned.

Fred Waller, chief of the Chicago Police Bureau of Patrol, told local reporters that police were examining three scenes.

He explained: "We had an incident where there was a party.

"Inside, there was a dispute, and shots were fired... several shots.

"People started to spill out, and as they spilled out more shots were fired... [and] more shots were fired at another location."
