A man was shot and seriously wounded early Wednesday during an argument on the Northwest Side.
The man, 39, was arguing with another man in the 5400 block of West Lake Street when he was shot multiple times in the upper body around 1:05 a.m., Chicago police said.
The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition, according to police.
The gunman fled in a black SUV and was not in custody, police said.
Three days earlier, about a mile away, five men were gathered in the backyard of a home about 12:30 a.m. in the 4800 block of West Race Avenue when a gunman entered and opened fire, police said.
The men — 23, 30, 36, 48 and 50 — suffered gunshot wounds to the lower body, police said. They were transported to Stroger and Mt. Sinai hospitals, where they were stabilized.
