At Least 10 Shot Overnight as Chicago Violence Continues

NBCNEWS.COM - At least 10 people have been shot, five of them fatally, in Chicago since Friday, police said.

The violent night came just one day after 13 people were injured in a Chicago park.

The victims included 10 males and three females, including 3-year-old Deonta Howard -- known as "Tay-man" -- who was shot in the jaw and listed in critical condition.

Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said an assault style rifle with a high capacity magazine was used in the park shooting.

McCarthy added that based on witness interviews, the attack appears to be gang-related, as several of the victims are gang members. It is still unclear whether more than one person opened fire, he said.

No one was in custody as of Saturday morning.

The most recent shooting took place around 4 a.m. Saturday in in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood.

The shooting occurred in the 0-100 block of East Chestnut Street when a 41-year-old man was shot in the abdomen over an argument about a parking spot, police said.

The shooter fled in a white car and the man was taken in serious condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

An hour earlier, two men were shot in the 1200 block of West Washburn Avenue, police said.

A 22-year-old man was standing on the sidewalk when he heard shots and felt pain, Sullivan said. The man was transported to John H. Stroger Hospital in critical condition where he was later pronounced dead. A second victim, a 23-year-old man, transported himself to the hospital with a wound to the leg.

Around 1:20 a.m., police said a 30-year-old man was exiting the driver's side of a vehicle when another car drove by and fired several shots.

The man was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

On Friday, a 37-year-old man was walking in an alley around 11:10 p.m. in the 6000 block of South Halsted Street when an offender fired shots from behind, police said.

The man was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.

Earlier Friday, a 321-year-old man was fatally shot in the head in the 6600 block of South Honore Street.

Police said an offender wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans fired shots at the man around 6:30 p.m. and fled the scene.

The man was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital.

Fifteen minutes earlier, an 18-year-old man was shot in the 2200 block of East 71st Street.

The teen was transported to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead, Sullivan said.

Around 5:30 p.m., a man was shot during a police-involved shooting on the city's Northwest Side.

Police said an officer observed a car matching the description of a vehicle wanted in connection with burglary in the 6100 block of West Belmont Avenue.

The officer pursued the vehicle and another responding sergeant attempted to curb it in the 5600 block of West Roscoe Street.

The sergeant then exited his vehicle and the offender reversed and intentionally rammed the squad car. The sergeant approached the vehicle, but the offender accelerated forward toward the officer and the officer fired, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

The man was taken into custody and transported to an area hospital for his injuries.

Earlier, a shooting in the Portage Park neighborhood left a man in his 20s with a gunshot wound to the foot, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Daniel O'Brien.

The man was shot around 1:52 p.m. in the 3700 block of North Mobile Avenue and was taken to Our Lady of Resurrection Medical Center in good condition, O'Brien said.

A teen was fatally shot minutes earlier around 1:35 p.m. in the 6900 block of South Vernon Avenue.

The teen was shot in the back and pronounced dead at the scene, O'Brien said.
