CHICAGO — Two people were killed and at least 18 others wounded in shootings between Friday afternoon and Sunday night, police said.

The latest homicide occurred when a man was driving south on the Dan Ryan Expressway. A car pulled up next to his and fired several shots about 1 a.m. near 71st Street in the Grand Crossing neighborhood, state police said.

The man, identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as 27-year-old Fredrick Taylor, of the 14000 block of South Atlantic Avenue in Riverdale, was struck several times and pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center at 3:14 a.m.

The woman, who was hit once and survived, was also treated at Christ.

At 11:42 p.m. Saturday, 24-year-old Jeremiah Moore succumbed to a gunshot to his head at Stroger Hospital, according to the medical examiner's office.

Moore, whose home address is unknown, was one of two men shot in East Garfield Park just after midnight Saturday, said Officer John Mirabelli, a police spokesman.

Moore and an 18-year-old companion had been walking back to their car after visiting a party in the 3500 block of West Lake Street when someone fired shots in their direction. Moore was fatally wounded, and the teen was hit in his chest and taken to Stroger in critical condition.

Police said the victim, who is listed in critical condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, has documented gang affiliations.

• Just before 8 p.m. Friday, a 29-year-old man was shot in the 1200 block of West Sunnyside Avenue in Uptown, Mirabelli said. The man, who cops said has gang affiliations, was listed in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

• About 7:37 p.m. Friday, a 25-year-old man shot in his right ankle during a drive-by in Austin, Mirabelli said. The man was walking in the 200 block of South Lavergne Avenue when someone in a blue Jeep began shooting.

The man, who police believe has gang affiliations, was treated and released from West Suburban.
