MyFoxChicago: Five people were killed and at least 22 others have been wounded – including an off-duty Oak Park policeman – in separate shootings in Chicago since Friday afternoon, police said.
The most recent fatal shooting happened early Sunday in the South Side Marquette Park neighborhood. A 26-year-old man was standing on the sidewalk in the 3100 block of West 64th Street about 12:40 a.m. when two males walked up and fired shots, police said.
The man was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed the fatality, but did not release additional details.
About 10 p.m. Friday, another man was shot to death in the South Side Gresham neighborhood. Officers responding to a call of shots fired in the 7900 block of South Aberdeen found a 26-year-old man lying on a sidewalk with gunshot wounds to the chest, police said. He was dead at the scene, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the fatality.
The other two fatal attacks happened within half an hour of each other earlier Friday evening on the South and West Sides.
About 5:20 p.m., a 24-year-old man was shot dead in the Grand Crossing neighborhood on the South Side. Kelvin L. Davis was standing on a sidewalk about 5:20 p.m. in the 1300 block of East 75th Street when a gunman in a gray vehicle shot at him, authorities said.
Davis, who lived in the 7500 block of South Dorchester, was shot in the neck and chest and taken to Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 6:15 p.m., authorities said.
About 5 p.m., two men and a woman were outside in the 4200 block of West Grenshaw when a gunman walked up and opened fire, police said.
Both men, ages 28 and 31, suffered gunshot wounds to the head, police said. The older man was found unresponsive on the ground and pronounced dead at the scene. The younger man was found in the driver seat of a bullet-riddled pickup truck and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later died, authorities said.
The 54-year-old woman was shot in the left leg and taken to Saint Anthony Hospital, where her condition stabilized, police said. The medical examiner’s office confirmed the fatalities but did not release further details.
On Sunday morning, an off-duty Oak Park police officer was shot on Chicago’s Far South Side. The shooting happened in the 300 block of West 103rd Place at 5:13 a.m., police said.
The 57-year-old officer was exiting his personal vehicle in the 300 block of West 103rd Place at 5:13 a.m. when he was approached by two males, police said. One of them fired numerous shots at the officer, striking him in the arm and leg, police said. The officer returned fire and shot one of the suspects. Both suspects then fled. The off-duty officer was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he is in serious condition.
A few minutes later, responding Chicago officers located two “males of interest” in the 9900 block of South Princeton, police said. One of them had a recent gunshot wound and was also taken to Christ in serious condition. No one had been charged as of Sunday morning.
At least 21 others have been injured in shootings since Friday afternoon.
