CHICAGO — A teenage boy was shot to death during a fight at a Woodlawn party Saturday night, police said, and four others were wounded in citywide shootings.

Shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday, a 16-year-old boy and his girlfriend began to argue while at a party in an apartment in the 6200 block of South Saint Lawrence Avenue, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a police spokeswoman.

The teen was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Marquise Harris.

A male at the party intervened, and a physical fight broke out. The male left the party, returned a few minutes later with a gun and shot Harris in his chest.

Harris — who lived at the address of the shooting — was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital at 12:05 a.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.

No one was in custody.

In non-fatal shootings:

• A 23-year-old man walked into Mount Sinai Hospital with a gunshot wound in his back about 4:25 a.m. Sunday, Sedevic said. The man claims he was shot in the 3000 block of South Keeler Avenue in Little Village. He is listed in "serious condition."

• Two men were shot in Englewood about 9:15 p.m. Saturday, Sedevic said. The men were in a house in the 6600 block of South Lowe Avenue when someone knocked on the front door.

When the pair stepped outside on the front porch, they were confronted by three men, who began shooting. Both victims were struck in their ankles and are listed in good condition.

A 19-year-old man was treated at Saint Bernard Hospital, while a 27-year-old man was taken to Stroger Hospital.

• In Humboldt Park, a 36-year-old man was shot in his leg about 7:20 p.m. Saturday in the 3500 block of West Huron Street, Sedevic said. The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in "stable condition."

No one was in custody for any of the shootings.
