The incidents happened in an area where Chicago police had stepped up patrols following the Pride Parade.
Three people were shot and three others were stabbed over several hours late Sunday into early Monday in Lake View East, where police had stepped up patrols after the Pride Parade.

About two hours earlier, a woman was arrested after stabbing three people during a fight.
The woman, 24, swung a knife during a fight in the 1000 block of West Belmont Avenue about 11:25 p.m., police said. The four had been arguing before the confrontation became physical.
