CHICAGO — Two men are dead and at least five others wounded in gun violence across the city Monday, police said.
A man died after suffering multiple gunshot wounds in Englewood Park Monday.
The second fatal shooting left a 23-year-old man dead in Humboldt Park Monday afternoon.
In the most recently reported shooting, at 4:45 p.m., four people, including two boys, were shot in Washington Park, said Officer Veejay Zala, a Chicago Police spokesman.
The four individuals, whose ages were not available, were standing in the hall of a building in the 5700 block of South Michigan Avenue when they were approached by an unknown individual. The person opened fire and then fled, Zala said.
One boy was shot in the chest and transported to Comer Children's Hospital. His condition was unknown. The other boy was shot in the left hand and taken to an area hospital, where he was listed in stable condition. The other two individuals were treated for gunshot wounds at Stroger Hospital, and their conditions were unavailable, Zala said.
According to police, the incident appears to be gang related.
At 4:30 p.m. in South Austin, a 27-year-old man was shot in his left leg while standing in the 900 block of North Lawler Avenue. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, Zala said.
