One person was killed and four others wounded on the West Side Sunday morning.

One person was killed and four others wounded Sunday in a mass shooting on the West Side.

Officers responded to a call about 1 a.m. in the 3400 block of West Lake Street and discovered five people — four males and a female — shot, Chicago Police said.

A 29-year-old man was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene, police said. He was identified as Marcus Edwards by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A 17-year-old male was shot in the shoulder and an 18-year-old woman in the torso, police said.

They were both taken to Stroger Hospital where the male was in fair condition and the woman in serious condition, police said.

A 34-year-old man was shot in the arm and a 28-year-old in the arm and chest, police said.

They were both taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where they were listed in fair condition, police said.

No one was in custody.

Five people were wounded and a man was killed in another mass shooting hours earlier in Calumet Heights on the South Side, officials said.

The group was in a parking lot about 9:10 p.m. when two male suspects fired shots from an alley in the 1600 block of East 87th Place, according to police.

A 39-year-old man was struck in the abdomen and showed up at Jackson Park Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said. He hasn’t been identified.

Another man, 40, was shot in the back and leg and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, police said. Another 39-year old man was struck in the ankle and was also transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in fair condition.

A fourth man, 32, was shot in the leg and self-transported to Trinity Hospital in good condition, police said.

A 44-year-old woman was struck in the leg and self-transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center in fair condition, police said. The other, 25, was shot in the arm and also self-transported to Trinity Hospital.

More than 41 yellow, numbered evidence markers — typically used to denote the location of shell casings — littered the ground at both ends of the block-long alley, which was surrounded by garages on one side and a row of business parking lots to the north.

The crime scene was relatively quiet, outside of some chatter from investigators and cars traveling through a Checkers drive-thru at the west end of the alley.

No arrests were made Saturday night as police investigated.
