Forty-one people were shot, six of them fatally, Monday in Chicago.

The gun violence comes at the heels of an especially violent Father’s Day weekend, when 104 people were shot, 14 of them fatally citywide.

In Monday’s last fatal attack, two women were killed and another wounded in a domestic shooting in Gresham on the South Side, officials said.

The shooting happened about 12:45 p.m. in the 8600 block of South Wood Street, according to Chicago police and fire officials. The Cook County medical examiner’s officer identified the victims as Frances Neal, 56, and Jasmine Neal, 27. A third woman, 22, was hospitalized. No arrests have been announced.

Earlier Monday morning, a 24-year-old man died at Mt. Sinai Hospital after being dropped off there at 6:45 a.m. with a gunshot wound, police said. The man, shot in the upper chest, was later pronounced dead. He was identified as Ronald Jackson of Austin, according to the medical examiner’s office

About 4:30 a.m., a man was shot dead in Lawndale on the West Side. The 41-year-old was on the street at 4:26 a.m. in the 3800 block of West Harrison Street when someone shot him in the face, according to police. He died about an hour later at Stroger Hospital.

A person of interest was taken into custody after people near the scene identified him as the possible shooter, police said. No charges have been announced.

Minutes prior, a man was killed in a shooting in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

The 30-year-old was walking at 4:18 a.m. in the 100 block of South Washtenaw Avenue when someone in the alley fired shots, according to police. He was hit in the neck and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he died. He was identified him as Lincoln Scott of South Shore, officials said.

Shortly after midnight, a teenage boy was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in Austin on the West Side.

They were walking in an alley at 12:18 a.m. in West Superior Street when someone fired at them, possibly from a gray sedan, according to police. A 15-year-old was shot in his leg, chest and abdomen.

He was taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead. The medical examiner’s office identified him as Michael Hke. The other boy, 16, was hit in the ankle and taken to Stroger Hospital in fair condition, police said.

In non-fatal shootings, a teenage girl was critically wounded in a shooting that left four other people injured in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

The group was at a large gathering on the street at 2:45 a.m. on South Central Park Boulevard when someone fired shots from a passing vehicle, according to police. The 16-year-old girl was hit in the abdomen and taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition. A 24-year-old woman shot in the leg and a 32-year-old man shot in the arm were taken to the same hospital in good condition.

Two other men, 30 and 31, were each shot in the leg and went to Mount Sinai Hospital on their own in good condition, police said

About 30 minutes earlier, three men were shot in Englewood on the South Side.

They were outside at a large gathering at 2:07 a.m. in the 7000 block of South Bishop Street when they heard gunshots and realized they’d been hit, according to police. They told investigators they didn’t see where the shots came from.

A 24-year-old man was shot in the arm and leg, a 26-year-old man was shot in the hip and a 30-year-old man was shot in the back, police said. They all went to Holy Cross Hospital on their own in fair condition.
