CHICAGO — Shootings have wounded five people, including a 15-year-old boy, since Thursday morning, police said.

• At 1 a.m. Friday, a 41-year-old man was wounded by a shooting in East Side, police said. The man was in his home in the 10600 block of South Avenue B when two people with a gun got in.

The man struggled with the two over the gun and a shot was fired. The bullet grazed the man's chest and he was taken to Trinity Hospital, where his condition was not available but he was listed as "stable," police said.

The men ran away after the incident, police said, and it wasn't known what they'd intended to do.

• At 12:05 a.m., a 34-year-old man was shot in Chicago Lawn, police said. The man was standing on a street corner in the 2400 block of West 62nd Street when someone in a passing blue car fired shots.

The man was hit in his torso and right arm and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where his condition was not available but he was listed as "stable," police said.

• At 10 p.m. Thursday, a 15-year-old boy was shot in West Humboldt Park while fighting gang members, police said.

• At 9 p.m., a 34-year-old man was shot on the border of Wicker Park and Noble Square. The shooting happened just two blocks from where a man was gunned down during an attempted carjacking earlier in the day.

• At 7:50 p.m., a 29-year-old man was shot in West Englewood, police said. The man was in the 6300 block of South Oakley Avenue when he was shot during a robbery.

The man was hit in his stomach and buttocks and was taken to Holy Cross Hospital. He was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, police said.

The man was a documented gang member, a police source said.

No one was in custody in these shootings.
