A Chicago shooting at a kid's birthday party left seven people wounded, one critically, early Sunday morning, Fox News reported.

It is unclear what sparked the incident, but police reported that the attackers arrived at the scene in west suburban Aurora on bikes and foot and fired multiple rounds before fleeing.

"The only suspect information we were able to gather is that the shots were fired by several males dressed in dark hooded sweatshirts," The Aurora Police department said on Facebook, adding that it appeared as if someone at the party returned fire.

The department noted that party attendees were "largely uncooperative."

Police arrived at the scene shortly after midnight to find six people suffering from gunshot wounds, with the seventh person having already been rushed to an Aurora Hospital by a relative.

The unamed victims were five men, ages 21, two 22-year-olds, a 25-year-old and a 28-year-old and two women ages 27 and 30, Fox News noted.

The incident has sparked concern among residents in the area.

One woman who lives a few blocks away said on Facebook that her son heard the gun shots.

Another woman who said she was in the hospital when the victims were brought in described the scene as "chaos."

A resident who moved from the area about a week ago described the family living at the house where the shooting occurred as "decent people."

"While I’m not entirely surprised, I am saddened that some fools actually decided to shoot up a home with children in it," he said.

"I have memories of being a little kid and rushed into my Abuelito’s house when there was a shooting at a park across the street from his on the east side. That’s not a fond memory but its a reality that exists in Aurora. You can’t heal community with bullets and you can’t heal people by just locking them in a cell."
