CHICAGO — Shootings over Mother's Day weekend killed six people and wounded 17, police said.

Three people have been killed and two wounded in shootings since Sunday.

In non-fatal shootings:

• At 1:35 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a call of a shooting in Washington Park. The officers went to the 6200 block of South King Drive, where a woman said her boyfriend, who was 19-22 years old, had his left side grazed by a bullet.

The man was uncooperative and he and his girlfriend would not provide officers with any information, police said. The man refused medical treatment and he and his girlfriend fled.
