1 dead, 10 wounded in shootings since Christmas Eve

Shootings throughout the city since Christmas Eve left one person dead and ten others wounded, including a 14-year-old boy.

A man was killed in a domestic-related shooting that wounded another man on Christmas Day in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

The men, ages 42 and 52, were shot in the 1900 block of South Trumbull about 6 p.m., police said. A male relative thought to be the shooter drove away from the scene in a blue vehicle, police said.

The 52-year-old was shot in his torso and leg, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he later died, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office confirmed the fatality but declined to release more details early Friday.

The other man was shot in the leg and took himself to Mount Sinai, where his condition had stabilized, police said.

A 14-year-old boy was wounded during the most recent nonfatal shooting early Friday in the South Side Chatham neighborhood.

The boy was outside about 1 a.m. in the 700 block of East 92nd Place when someone opened fire from a passing dark-colored SUV, police said.

He was shot in the arm and hand and taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, police said.

Late Wednesday night, a man and a woman were both shot and critically injured at the 95th Street Red Line station on the South Side.

During an argument with a woman, a male pulled out a gun and fired shots about 10:45 p.m. on the mezzanine level of the station at 14 W. 95th St., police said

The woman, 41, was shot in the knee and abdomen and a 25-year-old man was shot in the chest, police said. They were both taken in critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

A second man, 24, suffered an injury to the face when he was hit by shattered glass, police said. He was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers in Evergreen Park, where his condition had stabilized.

It was not known whether the two men knew the shooter, police said. The shooting did not affect train service, said CTA spokeswoman Ibis Antongiorgi.

The holiday’s first shooting happened at 11 a.m. Wednesday, when a man was shot in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

The 25-year-old man was walking down the street in the 4100 block of West Wilcox when he “heard shots and felt pain,” police said. He was dropped off at Mount Sinai Hospital with gunshot wounds to his head and left knee, police said. He was in guarded condition Wednesday afternoon.

At least five other people have been injured–two of them critically–in separate shootings on the South and West Sides of Chicago since 11:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve.

Additionally, a Chicago Police officer shot and critically wounded an allegedly suicidal, knife-wielding man who lunged at officers on Christmas Day.

The man ran with a knife at officers responding to a call of a possible suicide attempt about 6:40 p.m. in the 400 block of East Marquette, according to police. He allegedly stabbed at the protective vest of one officer before walking away.

Officers opened fire when he ran at them a second time, according to police. The man was shot twice in the torso and taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said.

The injured officer was taken to a hospital with minor injuries and listed in good condition. The knife was recovered, according to police.
