At least two people, including a teenager, were killed and 11 wounded in weekend violence in Chicago.

The latest happened Sunday night when a 27-year-old man was fatally stabbed on the 4000 block of South Wabash Avenue in the Grand Boulevard neighborhood. No charges have been filed in the case as police continue looking for the person responsible.

In a separate incident a 14-year-old boy was shot to death Sunday afternoon on the city's West Side.

Chicago Police said the boy was shot in the chest in a drive-by shooting. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police detained three males and recovered a weapon after locating a vehicle that matched a description of one seen near the shooting.

The victim's identity hasn't been released, pending notification of relatives.

Around 10:30 p.m. Saturday a man was shot in the South Side Chatham neighborhood. Police said he was in stable condition.

Last weekend two people were killed and 20 injured in violence across the city. Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Chicago saw a 69 percent decline in homicides in March, with 36 fewer murders than in March 2012.
