Eight people were shot in Chicago Monday, a relatively quiet day for the city after one of its most violent weekends of the year.

— A 32-year-old man was shot twice in the upper thigh about 9:25 p.m. in the 5200 block of West Adams Street, Chicago police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital where his condition was stabilized.

— Less than an hour earlier, a man was shot while walking in Englewood on the South Side. The 29-year-old was in the 6400 block of South Lowe Avenue when someone fired from a dark Chevy Impala about 8:35 p.m., police said. He was hit in the thigh and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized.

— A 26-year-old was shot during a carjacking in East Garfield Park about 6:20 p.m. The man was in a Pontiac in the 200 block of South Central Park Boulevard when two males and a female pulled up in a Cadillac and told him to get out, police said. The man complied, then one of the males punched him in the face and the female fired shots. He was struck in the buttocks and brought to Stroger Hospital in good condition.

— A 32-year-old man was shot in Heart of Chicago about 11:30 a.m. He was standing in the 2300 block of South Leavitt Street when he was struck multiple times and brought to Mt. Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

— A woman was grazed in the crossfire of a shootout in River North. The 32-year-old was crossing the street in the 600 block of North Wells Street when people in two SUVs started shooting at each other at 2 a.m., police said. A bullet grazed her foot and a friend drove her to Stroger Hospital. She didn’t appear to be the intended target, according to police.

— In the day’s first reported shooting, a 26-year-old man was wounded in the Humboldt Park neighborhood. He was standing in the gangway of a home just after midnight when someone fired shots from an alley in the 1400 block of North Rockwell Street, police said. The man was hit in the arm and was taken in good condition to a hospital.

Three others were wounded in shootings citywide.
