Three people were killed — including a 64-year-old woman — and eight others were wounded in shootings Friday across Chicago.

Most recently, a man was fatally shot in his chest in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side, Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. About 8:15 p.m., 52-year-old Victor Carrillo was struck when gunshots rang out as he sat in a parked car in an alley off the 4400 block of South Marshfield. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he died shortly after. He lived in the block where he was shot.

Also Friday night, a 64-year-old woman was killed when she was struck by a stray bullet in the Rogers Park neighborhood on the North Side, authorities said. Cynthia Trevillion was standing on the sidewalk about 6:30 p.m. in the 6900 block of Glenwood when shots were fired from a dark-colored SUV. She was taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, where she was pronounced dead. She wasn’t believed to be the target of the shooting.

Friday afternoon, a man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in the Wrightwood neighborhood on the Southwest Side. The men, both 26, were sitting in a car at 3:57 p.m. when someone walked up to them in the 8000 block of South California and fired shots, police said. Both were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where one died of a gunshot wound to his body and the other was stabilized with a gunshot wound to his bicep.

The medical examiner’s office has not released his identity.
