Four people were shot in Chicago Monday, including a man who was killed in the South Shore neighborhood.

The man, 31, was in the 7800 block of South South Shore Drive around 5:50 p.m. when someone opened fire, striking him in the hand, groin and leg, Chicago police said.

The man was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Just before midnight, two teens were wounded in a drive-by shooting in Englewood on the South Side, police said. A 17-year-old boy and an 18-year-old woman were outside in the 7000 block of South Throop Street, when someone in a passing car fired at them, police said.

The boy was grazed in the back of his head and brought to the University of Chicago Medical Center in good condition. The girl was struck in the ear and brought to Stroger Hospital, where she was stabilized.

Five people were killed and 40 others were wounded over the weekend citywide.
