Police arrested five people and seized multiple weapons Saturday after being called to a “gang-related party” in Wicker Park.
Officers responded shortly after 2 a.m. to the party in the 1200 block of North Milwaukee Avenue, and seized over twenty illegal guns, according to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.
Five people of interest were taken into custody at the scene and are being questioned by detectives, Guglielmi said. A trace investigation into the guns to see if they are linked to other crimes is underway.
Area North detectives are investigating.
