CHICAGO — Three men were killed and at least 13 wounded in shootings Saturday night and Sunday.

Earlier in the weekend, 11 people were shot on the South, West and Far North Sides, and one man was shot in Little Village — bringing weekend totals to three dead and at least 25 wounded.

The most recent fatal shooting happened about 11:30 a.m. Sunday, when a 41-year-old man was killed in the 9200 block of South Emerald Avenue in Brainerd.

Earlier Sunday, about 7:15 a.m., in Chatham, police found a 29-year-old man with a fatal gunshot wound in his head in the 900 block of East 81st Street.

In Austin, a 23-year-old man was shot to death during a fight on the sidewalk in the 400 block of North Leclaire Avenue about 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

And in River North, four men were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the 500 block of West Erie Street about 3:10 a.m. Sunday. Police said all four victims were self-admitted gang members, and the shooting could be gang-related. Police initially said one man had died, but on Sunday night said he was in critical condition at a North Side hospital.
