At least five people have been shot and one person stabbed in violence across Chicago since Friday.

The most recent shooting took place around 5a.m. Saturday in the 0 to 50 block of South Central Avenue when a 24-year-old man was shot while walking on the sidewalk, police said.

The man said he heard shots and felt pain and was transported to West Suburban Medical Center with a wound to his right ankle.

Ten minutes earlier, a man in his 20s was shot in the leg in the 1200 block of North Harding Avenue. The man was taken to Stroger hospital in stable condition, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

Around 2 a.m. Saturday a man was injured in the 300 block of North Central Avenue, according to authorities.

The 21-year-old man was walking on the sidewalk when another man walked up to him and fired several shots, Mirabelli said.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition with a wound to his left leg.

Less than a half hour earlier, a 23-year-old man was stabbed inside a fast food restaurant.

The man was stabbed by several males in the 5200 block of North Milwaukee Avenue and was taken to Lutheran General Hospital where his condition was stabilized, Mirabelli said.

Police believe the incident was gang-related, officials said.

On Friday, a man was injured in a drive-by shooting in the Avondale neighborhood.

The 24-year-old man was walking on a sidewalk around 10:50 p.m. in the 3300 block of North Whipple Street when a dark-colored SUV drove up and an offender fired shots, police said.

He was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in good condition with a gunshot wound to his right arm.

Just before 9 p.m., a 26-year-old man was shot inside an apartment in the 1500 block of East 61st Street, police said.

The man was inside an apartment with his friend who was handling a gun when the gun went off and struck him, Mirabelli said.

The man was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition and no arrests had been made as of Saturday morning.
