Four people were shot, one fatally, Tuesday in Chicago including a 32-year-old man who was fatally shot in a drive-by in South Shore on the South Side.

The man was identified as Jarrell L. Berry by the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was walking with a group of people about 2:40 a.m. in the 7000 block of South Merrill Avenue, when someone inside a black minivan fired shots at them, Chicago police said. He was struck in the abdomen and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Berry lived in the same block where he was shot, the medical examiner’s office said.

In non-fatal shootings, a woman was gravely wounded after she was shot in her head Tuesday in East Garfield Park on the West Side.
