Chicago Police are looking for multiple suspects following a rash of shootings overnight across the city.

Police said four people were shot and one of them killed in three different shootings within 45 minutes. A source told NBC Chicago Advocate Christ Medical Center took in 12 gunshot victims alone overnight.

A 19-year-old was in critical condition Friday morning after he and another teen were shot at Halsted and 122nd Street. Police said a gunman opened fire as the teens sat in a car. The 19-year-old was shot in the ear, and the 18-year-old was struck in the arm. Both are expected to be OK.

Police said another shooting inside a car happened in the Brainerd neighborhood at 91st and Justine.

The 25-year-old driver of a silver Grand Am died after he was shot numerous times. Police said his car ended up hitting a flower planter at the corner of that intersection.

In another incident, a 26-year-old man was shot numerous times in the North Austin neighborhood. Police said he was walking along North Linder on the city's West Side when a gunman approached and shot him in the midsection, the shoulder, twice in the head and once under an eye. He was in critical condition at Loyola.

No one was in custody for any of these shootings.
