Four people are being questioned by police after a man was shot and another person severely beaten in at a hotel near Midway Airport early Sunday in southwest suburban Bedford Park.

Crews were called at 1:18 a.m. to a fight at the Residence Inn Chicago Midway Airport at 6638 S. Cicero, according to a statement from Bedford Park police.

Officers found two males in a third-floor hotel room, one with a gunshot wound to the lower leg and the other “beaten up severely,” police said.

Both were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn with injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening, police said. Their exact ages weren’t immediately available, but police said the man shot was an adult.

A handgun was recovered at the scene and four people of interest were being interviewed by detectives Sunday morning in connection with the shooting, police said.

Kathleen Sebastian, spokeswoman for the Residence Inn’s management company, said the hotel is cooperating with the police investigation.

“As this is an ongoing investigation it would be inappropriate to provide further comment,” Sebastian said.
