The first fatal shooting occurred shortly after midnight. A teenage boy was killed and another was wounded in a shooting on the West Side.

Around 4:18 a.m., a 30-year-old man was walking along the street when he was hit in the back of the neck by someone who fired shots from a nearby alley. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

At approximately 4:30 a.m., another man, 41, was shot in the face. He died about an hour later at Stroger Hospital, according to police.

Later that morning, a 24-year-old man died at Mt. Sinai Hospital after he was dropped off at 6:45 a.m. with a gunshot wound in his upper chest.

The last fatal attack happened around 12:45 p.m. According to police, three women were shot, two fatally, in a domestic shooting on the South Side of the city.
