Police: 4 killed, 32 Wounded In Weekend Shootings Across Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) —Four people were killed and at least 32 more have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police.

The weekend’s latest homicide happened early Sunday in the Old Town neighborhood.

About 4 a.m., the shooter walked out of a fast food restaurant in the 100 block of West Division, opened fire on two men, and then took off in a Chevrolet Tahoe south on Clark, police said. The men, 20 and 30, were shot in the back and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where the younger man died, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released his name. The other man was in serious condition. The block where the shooting occurred was the target of a recent undercover drug investigation, according to a statement from Ald. Brian Hopkins (2nd).

Ninety minutes before that, a man was fatally shot in the Brainerd neighborhood on the South Side. Officers responding to a call of shots fired at 2:25 a.m. in the 8900 block of South Laflin found 24-year-old Kiev Dobbins dead with multiple gunshot wounds in a gangway, according to police and the medical examiner’s office. He lived a block south of where he was found. He was the fifth person shot in the neighborhood since last weekend.

Just before 2 a.m., a 36-year-old man was gunned down in Washington Park on the South Side. A dark-colored SUV pulled up to him in the 5100 block of South Indiana, and a gunman got out and shot him twice. The victim was dead at the scene, police said. His name has not been released.

The weekend’s first fatal shooting happened about midnight Sunday in Gage Park on the Southwest Side. Tontriche Weathersby Jr., 20, was at a party in the 5800 block of South Maplewood Avenue when he got into an argument with someone who shot him in the chest, authorities said. Weathersby, of the 2100 block of West 91st Street in Evergreen Park, was taken to Holy Cross Hospital and pronounced dead at 12:20 a.m.

The most recent nonfatal attack happened about 4 p.m. Sunday in West Garfield Park, where two 17-year-old boys were each shot in the left arm in the 3900 block of West Lexington. The boys took themselves to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition, but they weren’t cooperating with investigators, police said.

At least 29 more people have been wounded in other shootings since Friday evening.
