One man was killed and four were wounded in shootings on the South, West and Northwest sides from Thursday night into early Friday, police said.

Two were inside the bar near 75th and Michigan when “a known offender” pulled out a gun and shot them about 1:40 a.m., police said.

Both were taken to Stroger Hospital. A 29-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and succumbed to his injuries early Friday, police said. Another man, 32, was shot in the leg and listed in serious condition.

Police said one person was in custody in connection with the shooting and charges were pending Friday morning.

The most recent nonfatal shooting occurred in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

A 20-year-old man was outside in the 5100 block of West Chicago Avenue about 2:15 a.m. when someone walked up to him and shot him in the neck, pelvis and back, police said.

Someone drove him to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, where he was listed in critical condition, police said.

A 24-year-old man was shot in the left shoulder at 9:05 p.m. in the 1300 block of West 107th Street, according to police. He walked into Roseland Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.

Five minutes earlier, a 25-year-old man was walking southbound in the 1600 block of North Western Avenue when he heard gunshots and realized he’d been struck, according to police.

He took himself to Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized, police said. Investigators think the shooting was gang-related.
