A gunman dressed as a postal worker knocked at a door in Chicago and opened fire and on Thursday wounded two people inside the house, police said.
The victims said that a suspect claimed that at 2:18 p.m. CT (3:18 p.m. ET) he was delivering a package on the south side of the city, near the corner of 99th Street and State Streets, authorities said.
