A 40-year-old man was shot to death in Fuller Park on the South Side.

About 9:18 p.m., Damien L. Snerling was getting out of a parked vehicle when he was approached by a man with a gun in the 4400 block of South Wells Street, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

In non-fatal shootings, a 68-year-old man was injured an hour earlier in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

A few minutes later, gunfire wounded a woman in Uptown on the North Side.

The woman was hit in the leg and was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital where her condition was stabilized.

A drive-by a couple hours earlier wounded two 22-year-old men in West Garfield Park on the West Side.

The duo was on a front porch about 6:38 p.m. in the 4400 block of West Maypole Avenue and were fired upon by someone inside a gray sedan, police said. One of the men was hit in the buttocks while the other was hit in the leg. They were taken to Stroger Hospital where their conditions where stabilized.

Sunday’s earliest reported shooting wounded two others in Avalon Park on the South Side. About 3:57 a.m., they were in the 7900 block of South Anthony Avenue when someone walked up and fired shots, police said.
