• Most recently, at 10:10 p.m., four people were shot in the 6800 block of South Ashland Avenue, according to a police incident report.

The two men and two women were standing in front of a restaurant when someone emerged from a vacant lot and shot at them, police said.

A 24-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman were taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where they were each treated for a gunshot wound in their leg, police said.

Police could not provide any of their conditions but said all four were "stable."

• At 8:05 p.m., a 14-year-old boy was walking on the sidewalk in the 600 block of West 61st Place with a friend pulled out a gun and showed it to him, according to Officer Michelle Tannehill, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

The gun went off and hit the boy in his lower right leg, Tannehill said.
