CHICAGO — Three people were injured and one person was killed in separate shootings during daylight hours Tuesday, authorities said.

Around 1:40 p.m., a 30-year-old man was fatally shot in East Garfield Park.

Most recently, a 26-year-old man was shot in Jeffrey Manor on the Far South Side. 

The shooting occurred at 4:17 p.m. in the 9500 block of South Bennett Avenue, according to Officer Veejay Zala, a Chicago police spokesman.

The man was standing on the street when a light-colored SUV pulled up and three people got out, Zala said. 

One of them opened fire, striking the man multiple times in his chest, Zala said. Then, the shooter and the two others drove off.

The man is in critical condition after being transported to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Around 3:10 p.m., a 21-year-old Hispanic man was shot in Albany Park. The man was in the 4700 block of North Lawndale Avenue when someone shot him in his head, according to Zala.

He was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where he is listed in critical condition, Zala said.

Police said the man is a documented gang member.

Earlier around 11 a.m., a man, 18, was shot in West Garfield Park.

Someone opened fire in the 3800 block of West Arthington Street, striking the man in his foot, Zala said.

The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he is listed in good condition, according to Zala.

No one is in custody for either shooting, and detectives are investigating. 

No other information was immediately available.
