CHICAGO — Six men have been shot since Friday night, including two men wounded near Chicago Police headquarters in Bronzeville, authorities said.
In that shooting, two men were walking at about 3 a.m. Saturday when they got in an argument with another man on the sidewalk in the 3500 block of South Prairie Avenue, just two blocks from police headquarters, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman.
A 55-year-old man was shot in his chest while a 25-year-old man was shot in his chest, abdomen and right leg. Both made their way to Mercy Hospital but were transferred to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.
In other shootings:
• About 1 p.m. a 23-year-old man walked into West Suburban Hospital with four gunshot wounds, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he is in serious condition. He told police he was shot in the 3900 block of West Ohio Street.
• Shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday, a 22-year-old man was shot in the hand when someone in a white vehicle fired shots in the 8000 block of South Artesian Avenue in Ashburn. At first he refused medical attention, police said, but later was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in good condition.
• A man in his 20s drove himself to Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center after being shot in his right leg about 3:40 a.m., Sedevic said. He is believed to have been shot near the intersection of Milwaukee Avenue and Pulaski Road in Irving Park.
• A 52-year-old man was shot in his back in an apparent robbery at 8:20 p.m. in South Deering, Sedevic said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he is listed in serious condition after the shooting in the 2600 block of East 106th Street.
The overnight shootings come after two people were shot during the day Friday, including Ronald Sawyer, the first homicide victim in Chicago in 2014.
