Earlier that evening, a 20-year-old man was wounded in another Far South Side shooting, this time in the Pullman neighborhood.

About 6:10 p.m., the man was in an alley in the 1100 block of East 95th Street when two people approached him and started shooting, police said. A bullet struck his left foot and he drove himself to Trinity Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.

No shootings were reported Saturday afternoon or morning, as a rainfall descended over the city.

At least five people were shot, one fatally, in citywide gun violence on Friday.
