A man was killed and at least 20 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago from Friday night.
The fatal shooting happened just after 1 a.m. Saturday at a party in Logan Square. A 34-year-old man got into an argument with someone who then pulled out a handgun and shot him in the head at the gathering in the 3700 block of West Fullerton. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he died.
Less than an hour later, four people were shot and wounded in East Garfield Park — the fourth mass shooting in the area in the last three months. About 1:45 a.m., a group of people were standing in the street in the 2700 block of West Jackson Boulevard when a black truck approached and someone got out and began firing a rifle, Chicago police said. All four were taken to nearby hospitals in good condition.
About 3:15 a.m., two women were shot and wounded along a popular Old Town nightlife stretch on the Near North Side. Chicago police officers on foot patrol heard shots and found the two woman in the first block of West Division Street, police said. Both were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition. A suspect was taken into custody after a brief chase and a weapon was recovered, police said. No charges have been announced.
