CHICAGO -- Relatives mourned the loss of two men killed outside a Chicago night club on Christmas Day as authorities continued their investigation Monday.

The shooting outside the Victor Hotel night club -- which is near the city's downtown -- happened early Sunday and was preceded by an argument, authorities said. A preliminary investigation showed there was a single gunman.

Chicago police spokesman Mike Sullivan said Monday that there haven't been any charges filed in connection with the shooting. Authorities said a third man, a 21-year-old, was shot in the arm, treated at a Chicago hospital and released Sunday.

Family members said the victims were Jose Duckins, who was celebrating his 30th birthday, and night club bouncer Robert Warren, 34.

Warren's niece, April Bullock told the Chicago Sun-Times that her uncle was just doing his job at the club.

"He was killed for no reason," she said. "He had kids. We're all in shock."

Duckin's younger sister, Voshunda Duckins, told the newspaper that her brother was out with a group of friends celebrating his birthday after a Christmas celebration with family where he gave his 4-year-old son toys and clothes.

"He was a loving family man," she said. "He was expecting another child and he didn't deserve this."
