CHICAGO — Five people — including a 14-year-old boy — were injured in South Side shootings Thursday night. Also Thursday, a man attacked his co-worker with a piece of wood at McCormick Place.
• Shortly after 9 p.m., a 21-year-old man was shot in his right foot in the 8000 block of South Carpenter Street in Auburn Gresham, said Officer Michael Sullivan, a police spokesman. The man was treated at Holy Cross Hospital.
• A 14-year-old boy is in serious condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center after he was shot in Ashburn, said Officer Ron Gaines, a police spokesman. The teen had been involved in a physical fight in the 7600 block of South Homan Avenue. When he tried to run away about 7:45 p.m., someone shot him in the back.
• Earlier in the evening, three men were injured in a gang-related shooting in Chicago Lawn, Gaines said. The men were standing in the 7100 block of South Rockwell Avenue when a gunman opened fire about 5:10 p.m.
Two men were treated at Holy Cross Hospital: a 29-year-old who was shot in his leg and a 24-year-old struck in his arm. The third man — a 23-year-old shot in his leg — was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center.
Earlier Thursday, 34-year-old Brian Rollins was shot to death in an apparent robbery in Roseland.
In other overnight violence:
• A 32-year-old man was treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for "two puncture wounds" in his chest, Sullivan said. The man got into a fight with a co-worker about 8:50 p.m. Thursday on a loading dock at McCormick Place, 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive, Sullivan said.
During the fight, the co-worker swung a piece of wood at the victim, Sullivan said. No one was in custody because the victim "refused to cooperate" with police.
