Police in Urbana say a gunman fired into a crowd gathered on a patio for a large house party near the University of Illinois and wounded three men before fleeing. Urbana Police Lt. Bryant Seraphin says the shooting before 3:30 a.m. Sunday left two victims hospitalized. Their conditions were unavailable. He says the third person was treated and released. All of the victims are in their 20s. Seraphin says a fight precipitated the shooting. Authorities were searching for the gunman Sunday. University spokeswoman Robin Kaler says the shootings took place just across the street from the campus health center and a student dorm. It’s along a strip that includes some of the school’s Greek organizations. Kaler says university officials believe one victim is a student.
