A 21-year-old man was shot early Saturday morning in an unincorporated Aurora incident that may have been gang related, authorities said Saturday.

Kane County Sheriff's deputies and Aurora police responded to a report of shots fired about 3 a.m. Saturday at a residence in the 500 block of South Sumner Avenue in unincorporated Aurora Township.

They found two 21-year-old men who said they had been shot, but authorities later determined only one of the men was injured. Both men were transported to Rush-Copley Medical Center Aurora with nonlife threatening injuries, authorities said.

At the time of the shooting, a party was occurring at the residence and detectives have not ruled out that the shooting "may have been gang motivated," according to a Kane County Sheriff's news release.

No other injuries were reported and no arrests have been made.

Kane County Sheriff's deputies are continuing to investigate the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at (630) 444-1103.
