17 wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago

At least 17 people have been wounded in shootings across Chicago since Friday night.

The most recent attack happened Sunday afternoon in Uptown on the North Side.

A 24-year-old man was outside about 12:45 p.m. in the 1200 block of West Ainslie when he heard shots and realized he’d been struck nine times in the torso and right leg, according to Chicago Police. He managed to get himself to Weiss Memorial Hospital, where his condition stabilized. Police said he has documented gang ties.

Late Sunday morning, an 18-year-old man showed up at Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey with gunshot wounds to the thighs and buttocks about 11 a.m., police said. He told investigators he was shot in the 100 block of East 103rd Street on the Far South Side. He was listed in good condition. Police think it was gang-related.

Six people were shot in separate attacks from late Saturday into Sunday.

The older man suffered a graze wound to the left ankle and was taken to Norwegian American Hospital, where his condition was also stabilized.

Less than 20 minutes earlier, a man was injured in a shooting in the Northwest Side Irving Park neighborhood. The man, 36, was standing on the sidewalk in the 4100 block of North Bernard about 3:25 a.m. when he was approached by two males who fired shots in his direction, police said.
