CHICAGO — Two men were taken to the hospital after police saw them chasing each other, stopped them and then realized one of the men had been stabbed and the other had been shot.
Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, police saw the the two men chasing each other on foot through the 7800 block of South Lafayette in Grand Crossing.
After they stopped them, officers noticed one man, age 53, had been stabbed in his throat, stomach and hand, while the other man, 32, had been grazed on his arm with a bullet, said Officer Amina Greer, a Chicago Police Department spokeswoman.
Police found a knife on the 32-year-old man, who then told police the other man had a gun. The gun was found near the scene, said Greer.
The 53-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition, and the 32-year-old man was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in stable condition, Greer said.
Police said the 32-year-old man is in custody, but no charges have been filed.
Around 2:15 a.m., a 26-year-old man was shot several times in an alley near the 4600 block of West Madison Street in Austin. The man fled to a nearby gas station and called police. The man was shot in both of his legs, his side and his shoulder and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition, Greer said.
Police said a domestic incident led to the stabbing of a 30-year-old man early Monday morning. Around 1:28 a.m., the man was stabbed in his right knee by his girlfriend during an argument in the 800 block of North Massasoit Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. He was taken in stable condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, Greer said.
A 30-year-old man shot over a cellphone in West Pullman was one of two people shot between Saturday night to Sunday morning.
Shootings Friday night through Saturday left five people wounded — including a 15-year-old girl.
