CHICAGO — At least eight people were wounded, including three teenagers, in shootings citywide overnight.

In Greater Grand Crossing, a 15-year-old boy was standing outside when a man walked up and shot at him several times in the 100 block of West 73rd Street about 8:50 p.m. Thursday, said Jose Estrada, a police spokesman.

The boy was shot in his abdomen, hand and face. He was sent to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, Estrada said.

About 20 minutes earlier near the 1700 block of East 71st Street in South Shore, two people were in an alley when a man fired at them, striking both, Estrada said.

A 17-year-old was taken to Jackson Park Hospital in "stable" condition after being shot in his upper right leg. A 22-year-old was taken to Christ in "stable" condition with a bullet wound in his arm.

In Jefferson Park, police shot a teenager who threatened an officer with a wooden fence picket in the 4400 block of North Mulligan Avenue about 12:30 a.m. Friday, police said.

In other shootings:

• In South Deering, a 34-year-old man who was inside of a business in the 10700 block of South Torrence Avenue was wounded by a gunman who shot from outside about 1:30 a.m., Estrada said.

The victim was taken in good condition to Advocate Trinity Hospital with a gunshot wound in his foot.

He was taken to Jackson Park Hospital by a relative before being transferred to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
