CHICAGO — A 66-year-old man is dead after being shot during what police say may have been a robbery attempt.
The victim was shot in the neck shortly before 2 p.m. in the 2300 block of West 57th Street in Gage Park. He was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said. The shooting "may be robbery related," said Officer Veejay Zala, a police spokesman.
He was identified as Herbert Goode, of the 12000 block of 89th Avenue in Palos Park.
Three other people were shot Saturday.
A 34-year-old man was in grave condition after he was wounded in a Brainerd barber shop early Saturday morning police said.
He was one of at least three men to be wounded in shootings in the city overnight.
He was shot about 2:45 a.m. in the 9000 block of South Ashland Avenue when a gunman entered the shop and shot him in his abdomen, legs and groin, said Officer Michael Sullivan, a police spokesman.
The victim was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he is in grave condition.
In another shooting two men were leaving a party in Bronzeville when they were shot in their car while waiting at a stop sign in the 5000 block of South Indiana Avenue, Sullivan said.
Someone with a gun exited a nearby vehicle and shot at them about 3:30 a.m.
The victims drove themselves to Mercy Hospital. A 27-year-old was grazed in his hip while a 28-year-old was shot in his leg. The older man is in stable condition.
Also on Saturday, an 18-year-old man was shot and killed in New City.
