CHICAGO — May ended on a violent note, with three people killed and at least 16 wounded in shootings since Saturday night.

In the most recent homicide, a 17-year-old boy was killed, and five others, including a 14-year-old girl, were shot just after midnight in Austin, police said.

Two hours earlier, a 33-year-old man was shot his leg, side and arm in South Chicago before being taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition, where he died.

Around the same time, a 16-year-old boy was fatally wounded in his chest after a drive-by shooting in Irving Park, police said.

Saturday afternoon, a 21-year-old man, identified as McArthur Swindle, aka rapper OTF Nunu, was killed in a Chatham shooting.

In non-fatal shootings:

• About 5:45 p.m., in the 900 block of West 32nd Place, a man was shot in the head, police said, citing preliminary information. He was in critical condition, and being treated on the scene, police said.

•  About 2 p.m. Sunday in the 10100 block of South Emerald Avenue, a 19-year-old man suffered a graze wound to his left leg, police said. No more information was available.

• Around 3:45 a.m. Sunday, a 26-year-old man was shot in the back of the head when a dark SUV drove up behind him in the 1900 block of North Tripp Avenue in Hermosa and someone inside fired shots. The shooter then fled eastbound from the scene. The man was in stable condition at Stroger Hospital, said Officer Jose Estrada, a police spokesman.

The shooting appeared to be part of an ongoing feud between two documented gang members, authorities said. No one is in custody and Area North detectives are investigating.
