CHICAGO — Four people were shot citywide Friday night and Saturday morning, according to Chicago police.

At 6:04 p.m. Friday, an 18-year-old man was shot outside his home on the 1300 block of West 110th, said officer John Mirabelli, a police spokesman.

According to police reports, two men approached the young man's Morgan Park residence on foot and began shooting, Mirabelli said. The man then ran inside, but not before sustaining a gunshot wound to his lower right leg. He was treated at Roseland Community Hospital and is in good condition, Mirabelli said.

Police are questioning a person of interest, Mirabelli said.

At 7 p.m. Friday, a 24-year-old man was shot on the 3100 block of North Sawyer. The man was walking to a relative's home when a red SUV drove past him and a passenger opened fire, police said.

The man was treated at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center for gunshot wounds to his right arm and upper back. Police suspect the Logan Square shooting may have been gang-related.

A 20-year-old man was shot about 11:45 p.m. Friday while walking down an alley on the 1800 block of South California, Mirabelli said. He was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital for a graze wound on his left hand and released early Saturday. Police suspect the Douglas Park shooting may have been gang-related.

On Saturday, a 17-year-old man was shot at 2:35 a.m. on the 5800 block of South May in Englewood. The man sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the back and buttocks, Mirabelli said, but no additional details were available.
