Six people were injured in a single attack on the city's South Side. A group of men was standing outside around 11:30 p.m. when shots were fired in their direction, possibly from a vehicle, police said.
A 37-year-old man was shot in the head and listed in critical condition. The other victims, ages 28, 17, 21, and two 29-year-olds — one of whom was wound in the neck and back, and was also listed in critical condition — were also struck by gunfire. The other victims were listed in fair condition.
A 9-year-old boy and 27-year-old woman were shot just after 1 p.m. while sitting in a vehicle. Two suspects exited another vehicle and opened fire on the pair. Both victims were shot in the lower back. They were both listed as stable.
The day ended with a 21-year-old man shot in the hand during a domestic-related argument.
The bloodshed comes a day after 15 people were wounded by gunfire on Tuesday. On Monday, 21 people were shot, following a weekend in which 64 people were victims of gun violence, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
