Five people were wounded in a shooting Tuesday night in West Garfield Park, hours after eight people were shot in Englewood on the South Side earlier in the day.

The group was attacked about 9:20 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Monroe Street, possibly by more than one gunman, according to Chicago police.

A 29-year-old woman was struck in the back, a 39-year-old man was shot in the shoulder and leg, and a 40-year-old man was struck in the shoulder, police said. They were all taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where they were all in good condition.

Homicides in Chicago — A list of every victim: Our comprehensive database tracks every homicide in the city with information about victims, locations and more.

Earlier Tuesday, four people were fatally shot and four others wounded inside a house in the 6200 block of South Morgan in Englewood. Two of the people who died in that attack were mothers. Another was a man who had recently lost close relatives.

The shooting prompted Mayor Lori Lightfoot to say Chicago has joined a “club of cities to which no one wants to belong: cities with mass shootings.”

Nearly 300 of the 390 homicides in Cook County so far this year have been in Chicago, according to the medical examiner’s office. The county had recorded 342 during the same period last year.
