CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police are investigating a shooting that wounded two teenagers standing near a parade in which Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and his Republican challenger marched.

The Chicago Sun-Times (https://bit.ly/1sM8b0x) reports that the victims, ages 18 and 17, sustained wounds not considered life-threatening during a reported argument near Saturday’s yearly Bud Billiken parade.

The Bud Billiken is the nation’s oldest African-American parade and has been a tradition on the city’s South Side since 1929. It was founded by Robert S. Abbott, founder of the Chicago Defender newspaper.

The parade continued despite the shooting.

There was no immediate report of any charges.
