#Chicago_Chronicles : Week end in violence: shootings,shootings and shootings again

CHICAGO -- Four people were killed and 18 people were wounded by gunfire at the start of the weekend in Chicago. Among the wounded was a 14-year-old Chicago boy shot in the ear.
                                                                


One man was fatally shot in the Gresham neighborhood while a man and boy were injured in a separate shooting in the South Shore neighborhood on Saturday, according to Chicago police. The fatal shooting happened at 6:02 p.m. on the 8600 block of South Ashland Avenue in the Gresham neighborhood, said Officer Michelle Tannehill, a police spokeswoman.

A 21-year-old man was seated in a vehicle in a gas station when he was shot in the chest and right arm, according to Tannehill. The man was initially listed in serious condition but was later pronounced dead at St. Bernard's Hospital, police said.
The man was in the vehicle when someone reached into the car from an open driver's side window and fired at the man who was seated in the passenger seat, said Tannehill.


At 3:43 p.m. a man and a boy were shot in the 1600 block of East 70th Street, said Tannehill.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the left elbow and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where his condition had stabilized, said Tannehill.

A 17-year-old boy was shot in the stomach and was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition also stabilized, police said.

The two were standing on a corner when they were shot.


A boy was shot in an alley about 3 a.m. Saturday in the Englewood neighborhood. He was in stable condition at Comer Children's Hospital.

Among the dead was a 32-year-old man who was shot in the head while sitting in a vehicle in the West Englewood neighborhood. Police say he was pronounced dead at the scene.


Chicago police are looking for a man who wounded two other men outside a union hall on the city’s Far South Side.

The suspect got away from the headquarters of the United Auto Workers Local 551 on South Torrence.

The men were arguing shortly before 10 p.m. Friday. The two victims, in their 40s, suffered leg wounds and drove themselves to a hospital. 


                                                         


Union Vice President Jimmy Settles expressed concern about the incident, saying, “My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this senseless shooting.”

“While we await the results of the police investigation, I respectfully ask that we embrace one another,” he said in a statement.

The UAW represents workers at the nearby Ford plant.

Earlier in the day, election results for the union leaders were announced.
