CHICAGO — One man died and two others were shot, including a 17-year-old girl, in daytime shootings Wednesday on the South Side.
The teen girl was shot during an argument at a Woodlawn apartment party in the 6400 block of South Stony Island Avenue, police said.
She suffered a graze wound on her head about 3:20 p.m. and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition.
A 22-year-old man is in custody in connection with the shooting, and charges are pending, cops said.
A second incident, which left one man dead and another injured, happened at noon in the 700 block of East 79th Street near the border of Greater Grand Crossing, said Officer Michael Sullivan, a police spokesman.
One of the men, 19, went inside an apartment with a group of people while the other stayed in the hallway. The second man heard gunshots inside the apartment and tried to run, but he was shot as the suspects fled, cops said.
Tevin Bryant, 19, was pronounced dead on the scene at 1:37 p.m., authorities said, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
The second man, who cops said is 20 years old, was sent to Advocate Christ Medical Center with bullet wounds in his forearm and elbow.
Wednesday afternoon, police taped off an area two blocks from the apartment building where witnesses said the second man ran after being shot. Jackets and blood marked the spot where paramedics picked up the wounded victim to take him to the hospital.
The apartment building is two doors down from an office of Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Chicago), 700 E. 79th St., according to neighbors and people at the scene.
No one is in custody in connection with the second shooting.
