At least one person was killed and eight others were injured in overnight gun violence across Chicago Sunday.

The most recent shooting took place just before 9 a.m. Sunday when a 41-year-old man was shot in the Pilsen neighborhood.

Police said the man was shot in the back and left forearm and was transported in critical condition to John H. Stroger Hospital. The shooting appears to be gang related, officials said.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday, a 22-year-old man was shot while in a car in the 100 block of North Lorel Avenue.

Police said the man was sitting in a car with others when they were approached by an armed offender on foot who fired several shots at the car. The man suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

He was transported to Stroger Hospital in stable condition, police said.

Hours earlier, three people were shot at a lounge in Englewood.

Police said the shooting took place around 1:45 a.m. when four offenders fired shots into a lounge on the 1100 block of West 63rd Street. A 31-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and was transported in serious condition to Stroger Hospital.

A 30-year-old man was shot in the abdomen and foot. The man fled the scene in a friend’s van and was stopped by police on his way to the hospital, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada.

The man was stopped near West 64th Street and South Elizabeth Street where officers discovered he had been shot. The man was then transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in stable condition.

A third man was also shot during the incident but it was not clear if he was shot inside the lounge.

The 24-year-old man transported himself to Christ Hospital with a wound to the upper right back. He was listed in stable condition, Estrada said.

No one was in custody for the shooting as of Sunday afternoon.

Ten minutes earlier, a 26-year-old man was discovered shot in the 5600 block of West Bloomingdale Avenue.

Police responded to a call from a person around 1:35 a.m. and found the man on the ground with gunshot wounds to the chest and side of his body, Estrada said.

The man was taken in critical condition to Loyola University Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead, police said.

Police are conducting a homicide investigation and said the shooting may be gang related.

An hour earlier, a 42-year-old man was shot in the 3800 block of West Diversey Avenue, police said.

The man was a passenger in a parked car in an alley when a dark-colored SUV passed by and fired shots, striking the man in the back.

The driver of the car dropped the victim off at Our Lady of Resurrection Hospital where he was later transferred to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in stable condition.
