Three men were killed and at least 49 other people — including a 10-year-old girl — have been wounded in shootings across Chicago this weekend, police said.

The latest homicide happened Sunday afternoon in North Lawndale on the West Side, according to Chicago Police.

About 3 p.m., Quinton Dgoins, 25, was inside a car in the 3900 block of West Roosevelt Road when another car drove by and people from inside both cars began shooting at each other, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Dgoins, of the 3000 block of West Flournoy Street, was shot in the back and shoulder and taken to Mount Sinai where he was pronounced dead at 2:42 p.m., authorities said.

Earlier Sunday, a 23-year-old man was gunned down in the Pilsen neighborhood on the South Side.

He and a 24-year-old man were driving in the 1100 block of West 18th Street about 3:20 a.m. when someone walked out of an alley and opened fire, police said. Both were shot in the head.

The younger man, later identified as Abraham Barrera, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 5:33 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Barrera lived in the 4100 block of West 58th Place.

The 24-year-old was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Investigators think the shooting was gang-related.

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened in a Bronzeville neighborhood apartment complex Saturday on the South Side.

About noon, a 25-year-old man was arguing with a 34-year-old man inside the apartment in the 700 block of East 47th Street when the older man opened fire, police said.

The younger man suffered three gunshot wounds and was taken to Stroger, where he was pronounced dead at 12:43 p.m., authorities said. Officials withheld his name Sunday.

Police identified the shooter as Marvin Lee. He initially called for help saying the other man had broken into his home, but detectives determined they knew each other and had an altercation prior to the shooting.

Lee, who lives on the block where the shooting happened, was charged with first-degree murder and was ordered held without bond Sunday. He was next scheduled to appear in court Monday.

In the most recent non-fatal shooting, four people were wounded in a drive-by attack Sunday night in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side.

Three men and a woman were standing outside on the sidewalk in the 5200 block of South Justine Street about 10:40 p.m. when a light-colored SUV drove by and someone inside opened fire, police said. A 30-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the groin, a 33-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh and hip area, and a 35-year-old man was shot in the leg and hip. All three of them were taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition, police said. A 29-year-old woman suffered a graze wound to the shoulder, and was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in good condition.

About an hour earlier, two men were shot in the West Side Austin neighborhood.

The men, ages 18 and 24, were standing outside in the 3000 block of West Lexington Street about 9:40 p.m. when a vehicle pulled up and someone from inside fired shots, police said. The 18-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the chest, and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where his condition was stabilized. The older man suffered a graze wound to the right wrist and refused medical care at the scene. A police source said both men are documented gang members.

Earlier Sunday afternoon, a 10-year-old girl was among three people shot in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side.

She was outside with an 18-year-old woman and 19-year-old man about 12:50 p.m. in the 1400 block of East 66th Place when a gunman walked out of a vacant lot and started firing, police said.

A bullet grazed the girl’s neck and she was taken in good condition to Comer Children’s Hospital, police said. The man was shot in the back and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition. The woman suffered a graze wound to the calf was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where her condition was stabilized. Police said the woman and girl were not the intended targets.

At least 39 other people have been shot in the city since 3:50 p.m. Friday.

Additionally, a Chicago Police officer shot and killed a man who charged at officers with a sharp object about 9 p.m. in Humboldt Park’s 900 block of North Central Park, officials said.
