Three people are dead and 12 wounded in after a wave of gun violence Monday across Chicago.

A man was killed and another wounded in a shooting in West Englewood, blocks from where six people were shot Saturday at a baby shower. They were standing in the 6500 block of South Oakley around 5:40 a.m. when a vehicle drove by, and someone inside shot at them, the Chicago police said.

Jhanari Robinson, 19, was shot in the head and died at the scene, according to the police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The other man, 22, was shot in his abdomen and treated at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.

Just before 4 a.m. Monday in South Shore, Earl Taylor, 23, was mortally wounded when he was shot as he sat in a parked vehicle in the 7200 block of South Euclid. A sport-utility vehicle pulled up, and someone inside fired at him, police and the medical examiner’s office said. Struck in the head, Taylor died at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

In Monday’s first fatal shooting, a man died after he was shot five times in Austin on the West Side.

Daquan Conner, 19, was standing on the sidewalk at 12:38 p.m. in the 500 block of North Lamon Avenue when someone shot at him and ran away, according to police and the medical examiner’s office.

Conner was struck twice in the abdomen, twice in the upper thigh and once in the shoulder, police said. He died at Stroger Hospital. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details about the death.

In non-fatal shootings, a 14-year-old and 7-year-old were injured in separate incidents.

The 14-year-old girl was seriously wounded after shooting erupted inside her apartment complex Monday night in the Douglas area on the South Side. The girl had just entered her family’s apartment at 9:45 p.m. in the 2700 block of South Indiana Avenue when gunshots ripped through the door and struck her in the torso and abdomen, police said. She was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital in serious condition, police said.

The 7-year-old boy was hospitalized after shooting himself in the finger Monday evening in Galewood on the Northwest Side. He was playing with the gun at 6:40 p.m. inside a home in the 1700 block of North Nashville Avenue when it accidentally discharged, police said. The boy was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood in good condition, police said.

Nine more people were shot and wounded Monday in Chicago. The day’s gun violence follows a weekend in which 28 people were injured and five killed across the city.
