CHICAGO — One man was killed and three other men were injured in three separate shootings in Humboldt Park and Logan Square Monday.

The fatal shooting occurred about 7:35 p.m. when a 22-year-old man was shot in his chest, abdomen and leg in the 2300 block of North Ridgeway, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman.

Police discovered the man outside and paramedics took him to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.

The man, identified as Alexander Rodriguez of the 2200 block of North Meade Avenue in Belmont Cragin, was pronounced dead at 8:32 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

Earlier, a man was shot in his leg while walking in the 2400 block of North Avers Avenue about 5:10 p.m., Sedevic said.

The 29-year-old victim was taken to Illinois Masonic where he was in "stable" condition.

The shooting, which occurred a five-minute walk away from where Rodriguez was shot, came from a passing car and may have been gang related.

A few hours earlier, a 21-year-old man was shot in both of his legs and an 18-year-old was shot in the buttocks in the 1300 block of North St. Louis Avenue, Sedevic said.

The men, who were outside at a gathering when shots were fired from a westbound SUV, are in good condition after being taken to Stroger Hospital.

That shooting, which occurred at 2:37 p.m., may also be related to gangs.
