Four men were wounded in a shooting Monday in Homan Square on the West Side.

They were outside about 9:15 p.m. in the 3300 block of West Flournoy Street when someone unleashed gunfire, Chicago police said.

A 47-year-old man was struck multiple times while another man, 22, was shot in the face, police said. Both were taken to Stroger Hospital, where the older man was in critical condition and the younger man was in good condition.

The third man, 43, was shot in the thigh and was also in good condition at St. Anthony Hospital, police said. A 46-year-old man who was also shot in the thigh was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

No arrests have been reported. Area Four detectives are investigating.

About two hours earlier, a 15-year-old girl was shot in a park blocks away in the 3700 block of West Arthington Street.

The attack on Flournoy follows a weekend that saw two other mass shootings on the West Side.

On Saturday, six people were shot outside a party in Austin, including a 12-year-old girl. That attack came less than 24 hours after another mass shooting in the neighborhood left a man dead and three others wounded.

So far this year, Chicago has recorded at least 33 shootings that have wounded four or more victims, according to a Sun-Times analysis of city data. The city is now on pace to surpass the 48 total mass shootings tallied last year, when that number jumped amid a surge in violent crime that has continued this year.
