Chicago police are investigating several shootings around the city that left six people dead and several more wounded in a matter of hours.

Police spokesman Officer Hector Alfaro says that the first shooting happened at about 6 p.m. Thursday night and the others happened throughout the night and into early morning hours of Friday in various neighborhoods.

Alfaro says police believe the shootings that left five men and one woman dead are unrelated. He says no arrests had been made as of early Friday.

At least two of the victims died in drive-by shootings and two other people were shot and wounded when someone opened fire on a group of people playing basketball on the city's South Side.
