4 Dead, at Least 17 Wounded in Gun Violence Sunday

Four people are dead and at least 17 others have been wounded in shootings across the city of Chicago on Sunday.

The city's most recent fatal shooting occurred in the 5400 block of South Winchester at approximately 5:07 p.m., police said. 

A 26-year-old man was sitting on a porch when another person walked through a gangway and opened fire, striking the victim in the chest and in the back. The gunman then got in a metallic-colored sedan and fled the scene. 

The victim was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. 

A pair of fatal shootings occurred within five minutes of one another in different parts of the city. At 1:10 a.m. in the 6400 block of South Eberhart, a total of six people were shot while they were at an outdoor gathering.

A 39-year-old man was shot multiple times in the leg and abdomen, and was later pronounced dead at University of Chicago Hospital.

A total of five other victims were shot in the attack, and were listed in stable condition at the same hospital.

None of the victims were able to tell police where the shots came from, or who fired them. Authorities are still investigating the shooting.

Just five minutes later in the 1900 block of West Garfield, a 29-year-old man was sitting in a vehicle when he was approached by a man on foot, who shot him in the abdomen. The victim then crashed his car into another vehicle and was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

About two hours later in the 800 block of West 59th Street, a 24-year-old man was shot in the chest, stomach, back, and arms. A vehicle, possibly a green Jaguar, was seen fleeing the scene after the shooting. The man was later pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Hospital.
