CHICAGO — Shootings across the city left two people dead and wounded at least 11 people Saturday night and Sunday, police said.

In the most recent shooting, at about 7 p.m., a 33-year-old man was shot in the leg in the 5000 block of North Kenmore Avenue, said Officer Joshua Purkiss, a police spokesman.

Shorly before 4 p.m., 22-year-old Blake Lamb was fatally shot in his head in the 1600 block of West Jonquil Terrace in Rogers Park, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner's Offfice.

At about 2:50 p.m., a 16-year-old boy was fatally shot in the 10500 block of South Oglesby Avenue, police said. The boy, identified as Joseph Brewer Jr., was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and later pronounced dead. Police later said that a 28-year-old man was also injured in that incident with a gunshot wound to his hand.

Early on Sunday morning, at about 5:35 a.m., a 17-year-old boy was shot in Englewood, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman.

The teen was standing in the 7200 block of South Halsted Street when an unknown gunman walked up and opened fire. The boy was treated at Saint Bernard Hospital for a gunshot wound to his upper right arm.

• About 20 minutes earlier in Humboldt Park, a 33-year-old man was shot in his leg in the 1300 block of North Ridgeway Avenue, Estrada said. The man, who police described as a documented gang member, was treated at Stroger Hospital.

• In New City, a 60-year-old woman was shot in her face and chin shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday, Estrada said. The woman, who did not appear to be the intended target, was treated at Stroger Hospital for the shooting, which occurred in the 4500 block of South Wood Street.

• About 3:05 a.m. Sunday, a 20-year-old woman was shot in her left shoulder in Austin, Estrada said. The woman had been chatting with a male acquaintance in the the 800 block of North Parkside Avenue when two men approached and began shooting.

The woman was listed in serious condition at Mount Sinai Hospital, Estrada said. Police believe the male acquaintance may have been the intended target.

• Two teenage boys were shot in West Englewood about 11:55 p.m. Saturday, Estrada said. The teens were standing in the 5900 block of South Laflin Avenue when an armed man fired several shots before fleeing.

A 14-year-old boy was struck in his lower left leg, while a 15-year-old boy was hit in his right thigh. Both were listed in good condition at Stroger Hospital.

• In West Garfield Park, a late-night shooting injured a 38-year-old man and led to a fatal four-car collision.

The 38-year-old had been arguing with another man in the 100 block of South Springfield Avenue, Estrada said. As the fight escalated, the second man pulled a gun and opened fire about 11:30 p.m., striking the 38-year-old in his left ankle. The victim was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital.

The shooter, 33, sped off and was caught by police after he crashed into several cars near the intersection of West Chicago Avenue and North Pulaski Road. The man is currently in police custody, and charges are pending, Estrada said. A weapon was recovered at the scene.

• About 8:15 p.m. Saturday, a 72-year-old woman was shot in her left arm as she stood outside her home in the 6200 block of South Richmond Avenue, Estrada said. The woman, who was treated at Mount Sinai Hospital, was not believed to be the intended target of the Chicago Lawn shooting.

Two men were killed and two others wounded in shootings Friday and Saturday.
