WEST ENGLEWOOD — A spate of shootings since Monday evening has left one dead and at least 10 others wounded across the city, police said.
In West Englewood, a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed early Tuesday morning, authorities said.
About 4:06 a.m., the boy was shot in his head in a restaurant parking lot near the intersection of 62nd Street and Ashland Avenue, said Officer John Mirabelli, a police spokesman.
The victim, who police said had documented gang ties, was identified as Lenardo Allison of the 6200 block of South Laflin Street.
Earlier, two men were hospitalized after a shooting in Grand Boulevard, said Officer Ron Gaines, a police spokesman.
About midnight, a 49-year-old man and a 19-year-old man were sitting on the steps of a home in the 4500 block of South Indiana Avenue when a man approached them and pulled out a gun.
The gunman opened fire, and the teen was hit in his leg and taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition stabilized. The 49-year-old man was shot in the side of his stomach and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition, Gaines said.
About 11:15 p.m. Monday, a man was shot in Humboldt Park. The 27-year-old man was standing in front of his home in the 800 block of North Keystone Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain, Gaines said.
The man discovered he had been shot in his arm and was taken to Norwegian American Hospital in good condition.
Hours earlier, another man was taken to Norwegian American Hospital after a shooting on the West Side.
About 7 p.m., a 21-year-old man was shot in the hand in the 1600 block of North Francisco Avenue. He was listed in good condition at Norwegian, Gaines said. Police could not provide any details surrounding the shooting.
About an hour earlier, five men were wounded in a shooting in the city's Uptown neighborhood.
Early reports stated one man had died in that shooting, which happened about 6 p.m. in the 4500 block of North Sheridan Road, but police said Tuesday morning the man who had been reported dead was actually in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
No one was in custody as of Tuesday morning in connection with the shooting, police said.
