CHICAGO — Four people were wounded in separate shootings across the city Sunday.

Most recently, about 6:15 p.m., a 19-year-old man suffered a graze wound in an Austin shooting.

He was treated on the scene after being shot in the 1500 block of North Leclaire Avenue, police said, and it was not immediately clear if he needed to be taken to a local hospital. No one was in custody.

About 3:55 p.m., a man was shot multiple times in the first block of 101st Place in Roseland, police said. The 30-year-old was shot in his leg, groin and arm and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in unknown condition, according to preliminary information from cops.

Around 1:50 a.m. Sunday morning, a man in his 30s was shot in the back while walking in the 11300 block of South Harvard Avenue in West Roseland, police said. The man was taken to Stroger Hospital in "stable" condition, said Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.

A 42-year-old man was shot in the left side of his face about 50 minutes earlier in the Near West Side neighborhood. Around 1 a.m., the man was walking on the sidewalk in the 1100 block of South Western Avenue when a man approached and fired shots before fleeing in a dark SUV, said Alfaro.

The 42-year-old was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in "stable" condition. The shooting appeared to be gang-related, said Alfaro.

No further details were available.
