CHICAGO — One man was killed and four others were wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night, officials said.

About 5:30 a.m. Saturday, cops found a 27-year-old man unresponsive in the 4200 block of West West End Avenue. The man had been shot in his chest and his arm, said Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.

Luis Villasenor, of the 500 block of West 43rd Street, was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital at 6:07 a.m. Saturday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

No one was in custody as of Saturday night.

In other shootings:

• At 6 a.m. Saturday in the 100 block of North Kostner Avenue in West Garfield Park, a man, whose age is unknown, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition with a gunshot wound, said Officer Michael Sullivan, a police spokesman.

• A 22-year-old man walked into Stroger Hospital with a bullet wound in his lower left leg, saying he was shot in the 4000 block of West Wilcox Avenue in West Garfield Park, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman. The shooting occurred around 3 a.m., but no additional information was available.

• In Uptown at 11:05 p.m., two men, age 18 and 20, were standing on the sidewalk in the 4700 block of North Sheridan Avenue when they were approached by an armed man on foot, Estrada said.

The gunman shot multiple times in their direction, he said. The 18-year-old was shot in his right foot and was sent to Weiss Hospital, where he is in stable condition.
