US media have reported that at least one person has been killed and ten more wounded after a shooting at a Chicago basketball court.

In a twitter feed, the Chicago Fire Department relayed the news that ten adults and one child had been shot.

A 3-year-old is among those receiving hospital treatment according to various news agencies. Initial reports say that one of the people shot had died.

The shootings happened at about 10:15 p.m. at a basketball court in the city's Back of the Yard's neighborhood on the South Side, according to the Sun Times.

Four people were killed and eight injured when an armed man opened fire last Monday at the Washington Naval Yard, in southeast Washington, D.C.
