At least 11 people were shot during a three-hour span early Sunday.
Between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m., shootings across the South and West sides claimed three lives, according to police. One shooting on the South Side accounted for over half of the victims.
Six people were shot, one of them fatally, about 1:10 a.m. in the West Woodlawn neighborhood. The people were gathered in the 6400 block of South Eberhart when the shooting happened. They were taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where 39-year-old Tyrone White was pronounced dead, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
The five other people shot included a 24-year-old man was shot in his leg, a 21-year-old man grazed in the head, a 24-year-old woman shot in her arm, a 21-year-old man shot to his leg and a 19-year-old man shot in the back, police said.
Shortly after the shooting, police taped off the entire block of 6400 South Eberhart. Several cars on the street had bullet holes. One smelled strongly of leaking gasoline. At the emergency department, a group of women walked outside.
“He didn’t make it,” screamed one of the women. “That’s bogus as hell. They won’t let me go and see my son again.”
Another woman in the group was sobbing.
Another man was fatally shot about 1:15 a.m. on the border of the Back of the Yards and Englewood neighborhoods on the South Side. Devane Walker, 29, was sitting in a vehicle in the 1900 block of West Garfield Boulevard when someone walked up and shot him in the abdomen, according to authorities. The man drove himself down the street and then crashed into a parked vehicle near a gas station on Damen Avenue. He was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he died. He lived in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.
The third fatal shooting happened about 3:20 a.m. in the Englewood neighborhood. Cornelius Bell, 24, was outside in the 800 block of West 59th Street when someone in a passing car shot him multiple times, authorities said. He was shot in the chest, stomach, back and arms. Bell later died at University of Chicago Medical Center. He lived in the Ida B. Wells neighborhood.
The last reported nonfatal shooting during the three-hour period Sunday wounded a woman in the University Village neighborhood. The 24-year-old tried to break up a fight between a relative and someone they didn’t know about 3:15 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Loomis Street, police said. The other person then took out a gun and shot her in the face and stomach. She was taken to University of Illinois Hospital, where her condition stabilized. Area Central detectives were investigating the shooting.
About 3 a.m., a 25-year-old man was shot in the Roseland neighborhood on the Far South Side. The shooting happened about 3 a.m. in the first block of 110th Street, according to police. The man showed up at Roseland Hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg. His condition had stabilized. Police said the man wouldn’t provide details about the shooting.
The first reported shooting Sunday critically wounded a man in the West Garfield Park neighborhood. About 1 a.m., the 32-year-old was outside in the 1000 block of North Kildare when two people stepped out of a vehicle and shot him, police said.
