CHICAGO — A teen was killed and at least nine others were injured in city shootings from Monday afternoon until Tuesday morning, authorities said.
Cornelius German, 15, was found shot in the back in the 5000 block of South Evans Avenue in Bronzeville less than a mile away from President Barack Obama's Kenwood home. He was shot about 9:35 p.m. Monday night, police said.
Police said the motive for the shooting was unclear. The boy was a documented gang member, cops said.
In other shootings:
• About 11 a.m. Tuesday, a 21-year-old was shot in the chest in the 11300 block of South Michigan Avenue in Roseland, police said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in serious condition, police said.
• A 22-year-old man was outside talking to a group about 2 a.m. in the 3900 block of South California Avenue in Brighton Park when someone shot him in his thumb, said Sgt. Alexander Stinites, a Chicago Police Department spokesman. The man was taken in good condition to Holy Cross Hospital, Stinites said.
• About 9 p.m. Monday, a man was shot in an apparent drive-by in the city's Austin neighborhood, police said.
The 33-year-old man was standing outside a residence in the 1000 block of North Massasoit Avenue when someone in a gray car opened fire. The man was shot in his thigh and was taken to Loyola University Medical Center where his condition stabilized, according to Officer Amina Greer, a police spokeswoman.
• About 8 p.m., two men were walking in the 800 block of West 79th Street when a gray SUV pulled up and a backseat passenger opened fire, Greer said.
A 23-year-old man was shot in his leg, and a 21-year-old man was hit in his stomach. Both men were taken to Stroger Hospital, where their conditions stabilized, Greer said.
Greer said the men were not walking together during the shooting, and police believe the 23-year-old man was the intended target. Greer said the shooting might have been gang-related.
The four men — who ranged in ages between 19 and 34 — took bullets to their legs, though one might have an arm wound as well, in the shooting about 4:20 p.m. in the 5700 block of South Lowe Avenue.
No suspects were in custody for the shootings.
