CHICAGO — Two people have been killed and at least 10 wounded in shootings Saturday night and Sunday.

A 26-year-old man was fatally shot in his chest and side in Austin about 1:35 a.m. Sunday, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman.

Police responding to a call of shots fired found the man in the 5600 block of West Bloomingdale Avenue.

He was rushed in critical condition to Loyola University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 2:07 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

He was identified as Rafael Robinson of the 1300 block of South Tripp Avenue, the medical examiner's office said.

Also on Sunday, a 22-year-old man was shot dead in Englewood at 2:45 p.m.

In non-fatal shootings:

• A 27-year-old man is in serious condition after being shot in his chest in West Pullman Sunday afternoon. Police said the man was injured during a robbery at 12:45 p.m. near the intersection of 122nd Street and Harvard Avenue.

• In South Chicago, a 23-year-old man sustained gunshot wounds to both arms around 11 a.m. Sunday in the 8000 block of South Manistee Avenue. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in stable condition. Police said he was uncooperative.

•  A 41-year-old man is in critical condition after he was shot in his back and left arm in Pilsen about 9 a.m. Sunday, police said. The man, whom cops called a gang member, was shot in the 1300 block of West 18th Place and rushed to Stroger Hospital.

• A 22-year-old man was shot in his shoulder in Austin about 4 a.m. Sunday, Estrada said. The man was sitting with friends in a car in the 100 block of North Lorel Avenue when a gunman walked up and opened fire before running away.

The victim was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition had stabilized.

• Three men were wounded when gunfire erupted near an Englewood lounge early Sunday, Estrada said.

Witnesses told police that four men walked into the lounge in the 1100 block of West 63rd Street and opened fire around 1:45 a.m.

A 31-year-old man was shot in his abdomen and is listed in serious condition at Stroger Hospital. Two others were being treated at Advocate Christ Medical Center: a 30-year-old man who was shot in his abdomen and foot, and a 24-year-old man struck in his upper right back.

Police found the second victim — the 30-year-old man — in a van near the intersection of West 64th and South Elizabeth streets, Estrada said. Friends were driving the man to the hospital when the vehicle got pulled over. Cops called an ambulance for the man.

The third victim — the 24-year-old man — was driven by friends to Christ. Police said it was unclear whether the man was inside or outside the lounge when he got shot.

• Around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, a 42-year-old man was shot during a drive-by near the border of the Avondale and Logan Square neighborhoods, Estrada said.

The man was a passenger in a car in the 3800 block of West Diversey Avenue when someone in a passing SUV opened fire — striking the man in his back. Friends drove him to Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center, and he was later transferred to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

• Two people were shot in Fuller Park about 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Estrada said. The pair was exiting a car in the 4400 block of South Princeton Avenue when a man opened fire.

A 33-year-old woman was shot in her arm and both legs and taken to Stroger Hospital. A 44-year-old man suffered a graze wound to his neck, but refused medical attention.

No one was in custody for any of the shootings.
