Sixteen people were shot in Chicago Monday, including a 16-year-old boy who was among four wounded in an Uptown attack.

  • The four were on the sidewalk in the 4500 block of North Sheridan Road about 7:10 p.m. when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire, police said. The teen was shot in the buttocks and went to Weiss Memorial Hospital in good condition. Two men, 19 and 26, were also struck in the buttocks and were taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition. A 31-year-old was struck in the shoulder and also went to Weiss Memorial Hospital in good condition.
  • About 9:50 p.m, in Marquette Park, a 27-year-old man was shot when someone walked up to him in the 6400 block of South Kedzie Avenue, yelled a gang slogan and fired, Chicago police said. He was struck in the chest, twice in the shoulder and once in the armpit. He was taken to Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, where his condition was stabilized.
  • Around 7 p.m. in West Englewood, two men were wounded in a drive-by shooting in the 5600 block of South Racine Avenue, police said. A 34-year-old man was shot in the face and was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in serious condition. The other man, 28, was struck in the leg and taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where he was stabilized.
  • A 16-year-old boy was wounded in Humboldt Park on the West Side. The shooting happened about 5:40 p.m. in the 800 block of North St. Louis Avenue, police said. The teen suffered a gunshot wound to the right thigh and went to Norwegian Hospital, where he was listed in good condition.
  • Two men were wounded in Englewood on the South Side. Just before 2 p.m., the men, 30 and 32, were on the sidewalk in the 7400 block of South Stewart Avenue when a dark-colored car pulled up and someone inside fired shots, police said. The younger man suffered gunshot wounds to both legs, and the older man was struck in the foot.
  • A man was arrested after shooting another man during an argument in the Englewood neighborhood, police said. The 42-year-old gunman opened fire about 9:50 a.m. in the 6000 block of South Racine Avenue because he thought the other man was armed. The victim, 28, was shot twice in the abdomen and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center. His condition stabilized.

A man and woman, 22 and 18, were found with gunshot wounds about 12:25 a.m. in the 5500 block of South Michigan Avenue, police said.
