Three people were killed and at least 31 others, including a 7-year-old girl, have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since late Friday.
The most recent fatal shooting happened about 1 a.m. Sunday in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.
Two boys, ages 16 and 17, were standing on the sidewalk in the 8200 block of South Ingleside when someone walked up and fired shots at them, according to Chicago Police.
The younger boy suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead at 2:05 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. His name was withheld Sunday pending family notification.
The older boy was shot in the leg and also taken to Christ Medical Center, where his condition stabilized. A police source said the 17-year-old is a known gang member.
About two hours earlier, a 44-year-old man was shot to death in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
