A man was killed and at least two other people were wounded in shootings Monday on the South Side.

The man was gunned down at 7:42 p.m. in the Washington Park neighborhood on the South Side. Someone walked up to 23-year-old Jermaine Brown and opened fire, striking him multiple times in the 5400 block of South Indiana, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Brown, who lived in the same neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:48 p.m.

At 9:18 p.m., a 28-year-old man was wounded in a South Side Gresham neighborhood shooting. He was standing on the sidewalk in the 1600 block of West 81st Street when he heard shots and felt pain, police said. The man suffered gunshot wounds to the legs and took himself to Roseland Community Hospital, where his condition stabilized.

Monday’s first shooting happened at 8:42 p.m. in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side. An 18-year-old man was sitting in a vehicle in the 10100 block of South Avenue N when another male approached and shot him in the head, police said. He was taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The day’s gun violence followed a weekend in which six people were killed and at least 26 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago.
