A shooting that wounded 13 people and left four in critical condition took place after midnight on Sunday morning during a dispute inside a house party honoring the memory of a man shot dead in April during an attempted carjacking. The first shots were fired in the house, and two people appeared to shoot “randomly” at fleeing guests. Marciano White, was arrested with bail set at $300,000. He said he hid in a closet during the shooting and then found a loaded firearm in the aftermath. White has a history of drug crimes and was charged with unlawful use of weapon by a felon and as an armed habitual criminal, which is a Class-X felony punishable by up to 30 years in prison.

When police responded to an Englewood row house where more than a dozen people were wounded when gunshots were fired during a memorial party early Sunday, they spotted Marciano White walking down the street clutching a black bag, a Cook County prosecutor said Monday.

Inside the bag, they found a .357-caliber pistol and several pay stubs belonging to White. He admitted he was at the party — but said he hid in a closet when he heard gunfire. In the chaos that followed, White said he emerged from the closet, spotted the pistol on a staircase, and grabbed it as he fled the house because he was worried about “the situation and the neighborhood.”

As of Monday, White was the only person arrested in connection with the shooting, though Assistant State’s Attorney James Murphy said at a bond hearing for White that investigators have yet to test whether the gun in White’s bag fired any of the shots that wounded a total of 13 people.

White, who has two prior convictions on drug offenses, was charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and as an armed habitual criminal, and was ordered held on $300,000 bail.
