Chicago Shootings: 4 wounded Tuesday in Chicago shootings
Less than a hour before that, a 23-year-old man was wounded in Lawndale on the West Side.
The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, police said. He’s been uncooperative with investigators, giving conflicting stories.
A 28-year-old man was wounded trying to break up a dispute in Chatham on the South Side.
He was trying to intervene in an argument between two people about 5 p.m. in the 8000 block of South Ingleside Avenue, police said. One of the people fired a handgun, striking the man in his chest.
One person was taken into custody and Area South detectives are investigating.
Tuesday’s earliest report of gun violence happened in Calumet Heights on the South Side.
About 1:20 p.m., a 21-year-old woman was in a parked vehicle in the 9100 block of South Marquette Avenue when a male approached, pulled out a handgun and shot her in the back, according to police.
The woman drove away but later her passenger, who wasn’t hurt, took over and drove her to Trinity Hospital, police said. Her condition was stabilized.
Tuesday’s shootings come after a Monday in which one person was killed and four others were wounded in shootings across Chicago.
