At least five shooting deaths have occurred in Chicago including a teenager and a man in his 30s, authorities say.
Police Officer Daniel O’Brien says a gunman opened fire on two men Saturday around 2:15 a.m. on the city’s West Side. Ronnie Chambers was shot in the head while sitting in a parked car while a 21-year-old man, also in the car, was wounded.
Investigators say a few hours later, someone shot three men near a South Side eatery, killing two and wounding the third.
Another shooting took place Saturday afternoon in which a man in his 30s and a teenager were shot to death. No arrests have been made.
Chicago’s homicide count eclipsed 500 last year for the first time since 2008.
