2 Dead, 30 Others Wounded In Chicago Shootings Over Weekend

CHICAGO (CBS) — Two people were killed and at least 30 others — including a 12-year-old boy — were wounded in weekend shootings across the city.

One of the fatal shootings happened Saturday evening in the Humboldt Park neighborhood on the West Side.

About 6:50 p.m., Davontae Harrison, 21, was driving in the 3900 block of West Ferdinand when someone opened fire and shot him in the chest, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. He kept driving until either he or someone else in the car flagged down police in the 3300 block of West Chicago.

Harrison, of the 600 block of North Troy, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:37 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said.

A 16-year-old boy was shot to death early Saturday in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.

Officers responding to a call of a person shot found the 16-year-old lying in an alley in the 4000 block of West Jackson with gunshot wounds to the left leg and the left side of his chest about 4:15 a.m. Saturday, authorities said.

The boy was taken to Loretto Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:55 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s office. His name was withheld Sunday.

About 11 p.m. Friday, a 12-year-old boy was among three people injured in a shooting on the same block of West Garfield Park.

An 18-year-old man was standing at a bus stop about 11 p.m. in the 4000 block of West Jackson Boulevard when he heard shots ring out and realized he’d been struck, police said. He was shot in the buttocks and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.

Two other boys, ages 12 and 16, were both also shot and later walked into Sinai, police said.

The 12-year-old boy was shot in the left calf and and the 16-year-old was shot in the wrist, police said. They were both listed in good condition.
